A lovely Victorian photo locket brooch, containing an original ambrotype of a lady.
The brooch case is a gilded metal, with typical late 19th century decor.
The ambrotype depicts a lady of the period, dressed in black, with a lace white collar and huge pink ribbon....she is possibly wearing this actual brooch in the photo, the very first thing that struck me when I saw this piece. See what you think.
She has the original glass cover.
The back of the brooch is plain gilt metal , with period tube hinge, pin and 'c' catch.
Measurements: 2.25" by 2".
In good overall antique condition; some of the applique decor is missing from the lower frame; see photos; I do not believe this detracts from the interest of this beautiful piece; the back similarly shows age related surface wear to the surface metal.
Please view all the photographs for clear detail of the item on offer and its condition.
