From my own collection. I've had this 585 14K Russian yellow gold piece for as long as I can remember. I acquired it at an antique shop when I just started tow work, and have had it tucked away in a box for many years.
The gold is lush Russian or Egyptian gold with an almost matte or satin finish. The detail on the face of the pin and at the border is all hand work. The brooch measures 1-3/4" long by 9/16" wide. It has an old C clasp and there is a small ring on the back - not visible when worn and not sure of its purpose since there's only one ring.
The weight is 3.0 grams. It is marked 585 for (European most likely) 14K gold content, and has been also tested to be at least that (actually tests higher, as 15K.
Lovely condition - there is a mark indentation on the back (see photos) which has been there and of course is not visible.
This would be incredible on an antique doll.....
