Rare Victorian Man in the Moon

About

Rare and Unusual Victorian Man in the Moon gold brooch from the late 19th Century. Victorians with fascinated with the idea of travel to other planets from the romantic science novels (Jules Verne; From the Earth to the Moon) from that period. This rendition is particularly unusual as the character portrayed is quite solemn and it appears to have a rose diamond "tear" rolling down his nose from his diamond eye. Jewelry was symbolic and held multiple meanings so one can assume this wonderful brooch was more than a fine jeweler acknowledging the novelties of the moment. 1880s . Excellent condition. 1.75" x .75"
