This is an exquisite late Victorian bar brooch by Charles Horner, stamped CH and ROLLED GOLD. It is set with a beautiful foiled sapphire rhinestone crystal which has retained all its brilliant colour and iridescent inner sparkle.
The brooch measures 4 cm by 1.5 cm and fastens with a secure C clasp and a good straight pin. Very secure fastening!
An unusually fine exemplar of this Victorian Charles Horner bar brooch, beautiful and truly well preserved. Very collectible!
Charles Horner (1837-1896) was the founder of a unique and highly innovative jewellery and accessory business based in Halifax. The Horner works survived both world wars, and closed in the late 20th century. Charles Horner items, particularly those from the lifetime of the founder (such as this brooch) are very collectible.
Rolled gold was often used for fine quality costume jewellery during the Deco period because of its durability. It is made by rolling gold sheeting around an alloy core, and it contains 100 times more real gold than plating, making it virtually indestructible.
In pristine condition, professionally cleaned, from a smoke and pet free home. Vintage items may show the passage of time, but this is integral to their charm.
Any boxes pictured are display, but the item will be gift wrapped in an organza satchel or gift box.
