Fabulous antique brooch, actually a watch pin with the hook on the bottom from which to suspend a watch or other treasure. It is in fine tested 10K and 12K rose gold, typical in that time the lower karat gold would be used on the sides of the piece. It features a very elegant design with fine black enamel work and engraved designs on the front; with the design built up in layers and topped with three lovely pearls and some pretty fabulous metalwork. Suspended from the lower edge an original matching pendant with gold fringe, very very beautiful. This brooch measures 2 & 3/4" tall and 1 & 1/8" wide. As with any piece of karat gold, a loop could be added at the top by your jeweler if you desired to wear this on a chain. It is in very very good condition and much much prettier than the photos.
