A Nineteenth Century Chimera Brooch

Description

A nineteenth century chimera brooch, the ornately carved brooch in the form of an eagle dragon in flight, dropping an old-cut diamond from its open jaw, weighing approximately 0.50 carat, the whole brooch measuring approximately 5.2 x 3.4 cm, gross weight 17 grams, circa 1880.

An astounding brooch. In Greek mythology, the chimera was a fire-breathing monster with a lion’s head, a goat’s body, the wings of an eagle and the tail of a snake. This chimera has been wonderfully rendered in gold, and instead of fire, the chimera breathes a dazzling old-cut diamond. This piece is unique in its design and makes an eye-catching statement.
