Antique 800 Silver Brooch w/ Medieval Musicians Bagpipe & Horn

This is an interesting antique 800 silver brooch that depicts a pair of Medieval musicians, one playing a bagpipe and the other blowing a horn. The brooch has an almost illegible partial stamped mark on the back that I think is 80, probably should read as 800 if complete. The metal content tests positive for silver slightly below sterling grade and is a match to 800 silver content. The back of the brooch has an old fashioned simple C clasp and pin stem. The brooch is heavy cast silver.

This piece weighs a substantial 18.5 gr. It measures 1.5" x 1.75".

Condition is good.

I am intrigued by the unusual subject matter depicted in this brooch. The style of bagpipe shown looks like the type that dates from approximately the 17th century in Europe.
