This is a wonderful brooch. It's a portrait miniature, enameled, of a pastoral scene.
One of the nicest aspects of this piece, I think, is the lovely chasing with the garnet around the brooch.
It is worked on gold , unmarked but tested for 18 carat gold.
This one measures 0,91 inch diameter and weighs 4,9 grams.
The brooch still retains its original "t" hinge in steel , and "c" clasp, and is circa 1820.
There is no damage to this lovely piece of history except a tiny repair to the chain that borders the brooch ( see the photo).
