    TassieDevil
    (175 items)

    Hello everyone.
    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

      Just beautiful, the combo of the large agate with surrounding garnets is marvelous
    4. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 3 years ago
      I believe the combination is marvelous!
      The stone is beautiful!
      Are the garnets inverted? Kinda hard to tell...
      Simply beautiful Judy!
      What a great find... umm what's an op- shop?
    5. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 3 years ago
      Thanks Jenni for the great comment:-)
    6. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 3 years ago
      Thank you Eileen, glad you like it:-)
      Inverted? umm.....the stones are all faceted pointy, not flat, if that is what you mean....sorry, not good on technical terms!
      Op shop....opportunity shop....charity shop :-)
    7. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 3 years ago
      The added garnet colours are beautiful !~
    8. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Absolutely beautiful!! What an amazing deal Judy!
    9. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 3 years ago
      Thanks very much Phil, trying to capture the colour of the garnets was really difficult so I am glad you could see how beautiful they are! :-)
    10. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 3 years ago
      Thanks Scott, it really was a surprise to find something like this for a bargain price so close to home! Finds have been really scarce lately at the charity stores. I didn't realize how nice it was until we got home, so next time we call in there I will find something to buy to make up some money for them.......

      Whooohh! Judy! You stole that beautiful brooch... Shame on you! ;-)))

      Hi Judy... inverted- put in upside down.
      Schreiner pieces are almost always with
      inverted stones.
      So if your RS are "pointy" up, they are almost
      certainly "inverted". ( flat side down)
      Don't you just love CW ? We both learned something today... op- shop LOL
      I love it...

      1.50 well spent, Judy!!!
    15. Coopergirl Coopergirl, 3 years ago
      Gorgeous, & you can't beat that price!!
    16. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 3 years ago
      Thanks everyone for the comments, they are always really appreciated!
      I deliberately put this post up to check if my email notifications were working, which they were not, and still not by the look of it! Very frustrating to have to keep checking the posts for new comments as I do like to keep on top of these.
      Anyway, the problem has been reported and is being fixed apparently so will wait and see now.......
