A delightful antique lizard brooch from the mid-Victorian era. Its curving body is modelled in silver with textured engraving and stripes of green and white paste stones running from head to tail, resembling diamonds and emeralds with pink paste eyes at the top.  

Paste is a heavy, transparent flint glass that has been used since ancient times to simulate the beauty of gemstones. The art of cutting paste takes expert craftsmanship and the highest quality stones are often able to replicate the cut, colour and sparkle of natural gems to near perfection.

It’s a collectable antique piece, in excellent condition and would look fabulous pinned to a lapel.
