ANTIQUE early Victorian/GEORGIAN CUT STEEL KEY Brooch c. 1820S RARE
February 8, 2024
A beautifully made Antique Cut Steel Brooch in the form of a key. The multi-faceted cut steel studs that make up the Brooch would have sparkled wonderfully in the candlelight of a ballroom and stood out in the dark. This brooch is made up of four different shapes of stud. Cut steel jewellery was at the height of fashion in the 19th century and was very desirable both here in England and in Europe. Often made in Woodstock in Oxfordshire. Measures 5cm just under 2 long including the pin which extends slightly beyond the key. In excellent antique condition. Such an amazing survivor to have lasted this long!
