An Edwardian Fly Bar Brooch Featuring Four Gem-set Flies

Description

An Edwardian fly bar brooch featuring four Gem-set flies, each fly with an oval demantoid garnet thorax and half pearl set wings with cabochon ruby-set eyes, the one upon a bar brooch with the three smaller flies suspended beneath, circa 1900, measuring approximately 5.4×4.6cm, gross weight 7.5 grams.

A whimsical Edwardian bar brooch, made in around 1900. During the late Victorian and early Edwardian eras, it became popular for jewellery to depict insects in a naturalistic manner. The aim of such jewels was to cleverly deceive the eye into thinking a live insect had landed on the wearer. This brooch is a wonderful example of this playful style, featuring four flies in graduating sizes each with a demantoid garnet body and pearl-set wings. The flies are suspended from an elegant bar brooch, on which sits the largest of the flies.
