Unusual Antique Victorian English 9k Gold Natural Opal Chip Glass Phial Brooch
Treasure from the ancient apothecary – for when only a dash of colour from 130 years ago will do! This magical and unusual Victorian glass phial gives a sense of curiosity and mystery – its full of tiny opal chips, extremely vibrant and colourful natural slivers that catch the light with the full range of rainbow colours. They’re held in place with clear adhesive so they don’t turn to dust. To either end is a solid 9 or 15 carat gold stopper (non-removable) and it’s mounted with gold fittings for wear as a brooch. Its extremely rare and totally original – Ive never seen another one like it! Please see my Instagram page for a short video showing how the opals behave as light moves across them. It dates from around 1850/60 and is in excellent, fully wearable condition throughout, with no loss or damage. It weighs 5.4 grams and measures just shy of 2 inches long, and 7 mm in diameter. The final photo shows it with a US penny (1 cent) coin for scale, which measures 19 mm / ¾ of an inch diameter.
