A truly breathtaking example of finer late Georgian to Victorian era hand carved coral jewelry. Normally found in museums, the adorable miniature putti is resting and nestled on a flowing blanket. Effortlessly holding part of the blanket under his deep relief tiny baby belly with one hand the putti is also reaching his left hand up and forward to gently hold the blanket extending his arm. You can almost hear him giggle as the flowers brush up against his smooth skin... Gloriously resting on an assortment of elegant, intricate, beautifully hand carved and polished bouquet of flowers in different stages of bloom, open roses, high-relief closed rose buds, fruit, berries, with over 22 individually intricately hand carved leaves, each with their own uniquely shape bodies and veining front and back. The artist really paid attention to every detail. The brooch features more than 15 varieties of lovely antique hand carved coral flowers Exceptional detail. Extremely fine and very rare. This putti has the cutest little face too. Teeny tiny little fingers and petite toes. Absolutely Gorgeous!

The coral is a beautiful red salmon color. Uniquely shaped into a heart at over 2.5" in total length. This is a special heirloom quality design you'll enjoy wearing for many years to come. Showcase this miniature treasure sculpture as a conversation piece for display. Will obviously go up in value every year as they are so very scarce. There is a small bale hook on the back which will allow a pendant or jewelry you already own to be hung from it as a dangle drop accent. An lovely enhancer for brooch wearers. Coral is very beautiful mixed with pearl or turquoise jewelry. Superb from every angle.
