Antique Irish Harp Brooch

Victorian Irish Harp Brooch c.1900

SKU: BR003

A stylish late Victorian winged harp brooch.


The richly decorated Irish harp brooch is set with a row of demantoid garnets. 


The harp in its winged-maiden form was the symbol of Ireland from the eighteenth century, and with the rise of romantic nationalism the harp was increasingly personified as a female symbol of Ireland and her struggle for political independence. 


This beautiful brooch has a sprung pin to the reverse, it could easily be converted to a pendant if required.
