A stunning Victorian 9ct gold Etruscan style mourning locket brooch.

Stamped to reverse '9ct' with makers mark 'JS'.

Features an inlaid blue enamel starburst centre and a central seed pearl to represent tears.

The back has a locket compartment containing a photo of a baby, eyes seem a little fixed, possibly taken post mortem. Whatever the case, this would have been a hugely treasured piece for the wearer.

Locket back is gilt framed with a glass cover.

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

Measurements: 37mm by 32mm.

Weight: 7.49gms.

In good antique condition; looks like hinge has been reattached to brooch at some point, by a jeweller.

Please view all photographs provided for clear detail of item on offer and its condition.

A wonderfully sentimental piece for your collection.
