The thorax and abdomen of the insect are each embellished with an individually four claw set, Old European round cut diamond.

The grasshopper is further ornamented with yellow gold legs, incorporating pierced decoration to the hind femur.

The antique gold brooch is hallmarked to the reverse with the French import mark for 14ct yellow gold (St Jacques shell with an 'a' to the centre).

The gold grasshopper brooch is fitted to a fine and impressive hinged push fit blue leatherette and satin lined presentation case.

The satin lined interior displays the highly regarded London maker and retailer's mark 'Tessier, New Bond Street, London'.
