Bought this beautiful brooch from an op shop yesterday for $1.50 !!
I don't know anything about Bohemian garnets as I don't have any others like this to compare it to, so please do say if I am wrong.
I thought it was an unusual combination to have in the same brooch, but the agate is very pretty when held up to the light!
The pin and clasp are making me think 1930/40s but I have read there are lots of reproductions being made with these stones, so I don't really know if it is genuine or not. There do not seem to be any marks on it to identify it. I quite like the way the back looks to let the light through and I gave up trying to count how many stones are in the brooch lol. It measures approx 2 inches x 1 inch
I found a similar brooch on line and will put the link in comments. Look forward to any thoughts or comments, thanks Judy
