This fabulous brooch is reverse carved on crystal and the crystal is set on an onyx which gives it amazing depth and really makes the carving pop. The scene is a Nude Woman with drapery at her feet, an urn, and an Aladdin lamp on a pedestal which she seems to be focusing all of her attention on. The ornate pierced foliate frame is crafted of 18k yellow gold. The entire piece is a lovely work of art.
