Vatican 18ct Gold & Platinum Gold Helmet & Staff Brooch




A really unusual gold brooch which is modelled on a Vatican Guard’s helmet and staff which is set with 5 diamonds and 2 natural pearls and 4 coral beads and a sapphire. It was presumably a souvenir of a visit to Rome or it was a special commission. It is beautifully made in 18ct gold and platinum circa 1900, and would suit a Catholic especially.
