The iconic imagery of a winged wheel elevated by luxurious materials. This circa 1890s brooch is crafted of rich yellow 14k gold, covered in pearls. The back of the brooch features a chatelaine hook for suspending a watch or pendant. Even the clasp is extra fabulous. The image of a winged wheel dates back thousands of years and is seen in Greek and Roman history and on monuments. It is said to represent Athena, Mercury, even a Chariot, surely an image that implies movement.

Details.....The brooch measures 1.57" by .47" and is in excellent condition. You should always expect some wear on Vintage and Antique Jewels, we consider it a part of the charm.
