A late Victorian or Edwardian brooch which could have held a photograph or, with the addition of a backing, a lock of hair or other mourning trinket. The gold is both yellow and rose gold in colour, marked 9CT on the side near the clasp.
The thin frame inside the reverse of the piece pops out so you can very easily insert your own photograph or picture behind the single pane of bevelled-edge glass.
We think this is rather reminiscent of the evil queen's mirror in Snow White - who is the fairest of them all?!
Secures with a tube hinge and C clasp.
In very nice antique condition
Size: 4.3 x 3.6cm.
