Small Antique Georgian Pearl Crescent Moon Pin - 14K Rose Gold - Natural Pearls

An antique Georgian crescent moon brooch. Natural pearls and tiny seed 
pearls. Hand sewn or hand threaded onto a mother of pearl template. Typically 
horsehair was used. Very intricate work. I believe that the pearl moon dates back 
much earlier than the gold hardware or finding. From the 1820s to 1850s late 
Georgian to early Victorian period The pin on the back is 14K rose gold. (stamped) 
Simple C clasp that is in working order. 

3/4" by 3/4" 

---There appears to be three or four tiny pearls missing from the inside edge of 
the moon. That being said...I am not sure if they are missing or if that was the way 
this piece was made. 
---There is some yellowing around some of the pearls. Perhaps an old lacquer.
---As with most of these sewn pieces, you can see the thread. Please see photos.
