Cannetille work was inspired by embroidery, reputedly the embroidery found in
traditional peasant garments. Some sources mention 18th century Portugal or
India as a source, some mention France. The simple filigree tendrils that
started to appear in the fashion and jewelry world around 1820 transformed into
cannetille during the following decade. One can find cannetille work from
almost every European nation during the 1820s and 1830s.

This incredible brooch has intricately crafted cannetille work in 14 karat
gold. Leaves, stems, blossoms and vines lushly fill the large oval frame,
dotted with dusky purple amethysts, and backed with a mottled blue lapis lazuli
stone. It's a gorgeous relic of the Georgian Era, just the piece for a special
occasion, and the crowning glory in any antique jewelry lover's collection!

Circa 1820-1830
