Antique, Victorian brooch / pin. Wedgwood blue and white jasper plaque set in a fabulous mount. Made in ENgland. The mark corresponds to the date used by Wedgwood 1785-1795. (Mankowitz page 134). The silver mount may be original or much later. Measurements: Length of plaque alone is 21mm. Total length is 42mm. Weighs 17 grams. 8 sided little plaque in a deep blue jasper with extremely finely depicted figures which look like Adam and Eve being cast out of the Garden of Eden by the Angel. Behind Eve are trees and baskets full of fruit. The figures are so finely modelled that with a magnifying glass you can see the eyes and tiny details. This indicates an early date of manufacture. The back of the plaque has an impressed WEDGWOOD mark (all capitals, no England) and the letter R. It is in very good condition. No damage of any sort. The little plaque is set in a fabulous mount. It consists of flowers on a number of levels, in an openwork design. The top flowers are very bold and solid. Beneath that is a more delicate layer of scrolling botanicals. The back of the mount is no less decorated than the front. It consists of fine flowers, foliage and scrolls, again, in an openwork pattern. Secure pin and clasp.
