This is an impressive antique 15ct solid gold amethyst and split seed-pearl gemstone 'spray' brooch, complete with a locking pin and safety chain attachment. The brooch exhibits an appealing floral arrangement and is encrusted with amethyst(sizes 2.0mm and 2.5mm) and lustre glow split seed-pearl gemstones(sizes ranging from 1.0mm to 2.5mm). There is a strong locking pin and a safety chain to its reverse, an added device to prevent the brooch from detaching itself from the clothing item. There is a '15ct' stamp marking, along with the maker's initials also to the reverse of the brooch. The brooch measures 50.0mm(east to west) x 25.0mm(north to south) and it weighs heavy at 7.4grams. Spectacular condition throughout with genuine gemstones and without repair -- a lovely item of antique jewellery, and most likely Victorian from its appearance and characteristics.
