This fabulous antique silver crescent moon paste brooch is genuine Victorian Circa late 1800. The beautiful brooch depicts a crescent moon and a rising star adorned with sparkling white paste stones. The paste stones are graduating in size, some of the stones have become a little yellow over time. Star and moon imagery used in jewellery became popular during the 19th century as people became fascinated in astronomy. Paste is a heavy, transparent flint glass that has been used to simulate the fire and brilliance of diamonds. They sparkle similar to a diamond and allowed stunning pieces of jewellery to be made that were more accessible to all. This mesmerising gem of a brooch is stamped to the rear with 935 for fine silver, a star and a circle with a flower inside. The origins of the brooch point to the piece being Germanby Martin Mayar. The age of the piece would be late 1800’s or early 1900’s as it is fitted with an original pin and C clasp. This gorgeous highly collectable brooch would be a great piece to add to your collection of treasures.
