A very attractive mid Victorian era pinchbeck brooch.
A popular symbol found in Victorian jewellery is the buckle and this brooch features a particularly decorative buckle with delicate floral engraving across the ribbon style band.
It is enclosed within a thick rimmed circle, made from the popular alternative to gold in the era which was pinchbeck, an alloy created to closely resemble the precious metal but without the price tag.
It has an old C type clasp, pin slightly protruding from the side, good condition for the age, some wear and darker patches and some solder can be seen on the reverse.
It is a fairly large piece at 1" diameter.
