Victorian Gold-Filled Fob or Watch Pin with Black Enamel

This late nineteenth century brooch is gold over brass with black pique enamel decoration accenting the pretty engraved design. This Victorian pin could be called "Eastlake" style; the decoration is closely related to that of the furniture of ca. 1880-1900. It was designed to carry a fob or locket but is pretty enough to wear on its own. There is a hook on the back to hang the watch or fob. The pin bar, hinge, and clasp were replaced around 1920. There is an old-fashioned ca. 1920 safety catch. The repair was carefully done and is not noticeable unless one looks for it. The pin has two small surface dents but no damage to the enamel. It measures 1 1/2" wide X 1 1/4" high X 3/8" thick.
