Again, from my travels abroad. This is a very large sterling mourning pin, most likely Victorian. It appears to be a regular brooch with a large tiger eye stone under glass. However, the top bezel comes off completely to reveal a compartment underneath. I just love that! It's like a secret compartment. It is not marked, but tests as sterling. Both upper and lower edges have twisted rope bezels. It has the old c-clasp and measures 2 1/8 x 1.75 inches. In overall excellent condition except for a very small chip on the glass. The smaller bezel is 1.5 x 1.25 inches.
