Bejewelled Creatures

We haven't changed much in 40,000 years. We still like our handcrafted figurines of interesting fauna. We just demand better craftsmanship. Left is a 19th-century diamond, tiger’s eye and ruby spider brooch, its legs set with rose-cut diamonds. Right is a Victorian enamelled brooch with tiger’s eye thorax, rose-cut diamond wings and ruby eyes. They will be offered as separate lots on 21 August by London firm Auction Zero (CLICK).
