A truly gorgeous, late Victorian sterling silver brooch, of very fine workmanship, c1890.

​Open set with a raised swallow in flight, the bird being enamelled in two shades of blue; with further embellishment in the form of an applique silver leaf and two blue paste stones. The outer silver frame has a repeated bead design.

The swallow was used in Victorian jewellery as a symbol to 'come home safe and well'; this brooch would have been worn by someone separated from a loved one.

Stamped STERLING SILVER WBs.

Ball hinge, pin and 'c' catch to fasten.

Measurements: 1.25" in diameter.

​Weight: 5.55gms.

In good antique condition; minor wear to enamel commensurate with age.
