An Important Giuliano Renaissance-Revival Brooch



An important Giuliano Renaissance-Revival gold and enamel gem-set brooch, the brooch decorated with the figure of Venus enamelled en ronde bosse, holding up a diamond-set mirror and an enamelled drape, seated under a canopy set with cushion-shaped rubies and rose-cut diamonds, a tiger couchant and a spray of pink roses at her feet, flanked by a pair of white doves holding pearl garlands connected to a pair of male mask heads supporting pearl fringes, an additional pearl fringe at the base, all in 18ct yellow gold, signed C.G., circa 1870, measuring approximately 8.3 cm long and 5.5 cm wide, gross weight 64.5 grams. Unmarked tested as 18ct Gold. An Important brooch in excellent condition. Decorative and unique, this magnificent Renaissance-Revival brooch is one of Guiliano’s most significant creations from the collection of Bentley & Skinner, the London jewellers by appointment to both Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales. A work of art in miniature, the gold and enamel gem-set brooch features Venus, goddess of love, carefully poised holding a diamond mirror and colourful drape, sitting under a wonderful canopy of rubies and diamonds. The ornate piece also includes a reclining tiger, beautiful pink roses, and a pair of white doves which all add to the splendour of this fine piece of jewellery. Should you choose to make this purchase we will delighted to send it to you in a Bentley & Skinner handmade leather case packed in a gift-wrapped Bentley & Skinner black and gold presentation box. Shortly afterwards we will send you on a valuation for insurance purposes for your reference and safekeeping.
