(For those who do not want to strain their eyes reading such faded print, the relevant section is 6 lines from the end. It commences "Lady and Gentlemen friends...")
Daily Telegraph 21 July 1896
The Times described what I think is the same jewel as a brooch. (Perhaps the antenna are removable and so the rest of the jewel can be worn as a brooch)
I do not think there can be any doubt that the description in the Daily Telegraph refers to the anything other than the aigrette currently worn by Princess Astrid. The rubies in it are definitely cabochons. And to think that the media in 1896 described the jewel as having antenna!! Just as we do today!
