Amethyst Glass Brooch
This signed Fishel-Nessler (FN&Co) designer brooch from the late Victorian Era (circa 1880) is an amazing find. Incredibly delicate filigree work surrounds an oval faceted amethyst glass stone in a bezel setting. The ornamental border is edged with Forget-Me-Nots and Laurel leaves…symbols of success, triumph, remembrance, or most importantly true love.
Maker: Fishel-Nessler Company began operation in New York, NY from 1885 through 1936 or longer.
Measurements: 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″
Condition: This brooch very good antique condition; the gold gilt is bright showing some loss only on the reverse. The glass stone is bezel set and has a deep luminous amethyst color. The top facets show a very small amount of softening from years of wear. There are no cracks, nicks or overt scratches. The pin stem varies only slightly from perfectly straight and works exactly as it should, staying securely fastened when worn.
Markings: Early FN Co Stamp on reverse (see image)
Circa: 1880s Victorian Era.
