18K & Silver Austrian-Hungarian Victorian Turquoise & Pearl Initial Z Brooch-Pendant
An outstanding Austrian-Hungarian c.1870-1880 initial "Z" brooch-pendant set with lovely turquoises and pearls and crafted in 18k gold and silver, hallmarked.
The brooch-pendant features an intricate design with the initial "Z" in the middle, surmounted by three gold leaves on each side and two smaller gold leaves on the base. There is a crown that is set with pearls around the initial. It might also be a monogram "ZM".
It is hallmarked with Austrian-Hungarian hallmarks for silver and 18k gold, as well as maker's marks on the bail. It is also hallmarked on the brooch pin. The piece comes with its original hidden bail on the reverse, so that it can also be worn as a pendant.
The brooch pin opens and closes well. It is very rare to come across an original antique piece that is an initial "Z" - as it is a hard to source and uncommon initial. We are so excited to be able to offer it in excellent condition, with no modifications or repairs to the piece. It is in stunning original condition.
It is always a delight to come across Austrian-Hungarian pieces as the Austro-Hungarian dual monarchy empire was only from 1867 to 1918.
It measures 43.7mm x 39.5mm height, and weighs 12.12 grams.
