Gorgeous Antique Victorian French Saint Esprit Silver Paste Dove Brooch.
This wonderful brooch is decorated in sparkling white Paste Stones and features a fancy bow with a hanging Dove carrying an olive branch. Doves are known as the ‘Love bird’ as they’re known to keep the same partner throughout their entire life. A Dove carrying an Olive branch has long been a symbolic image of peace and freedom.
The coolest part is the dove dangles, it can be separated from the brooch. This is a 2 in 1 piece! This was made so the brooch and the dove can be wore alone. Just lovely! (see photo #5).
The silver is in amazing condition, with nice openwork detailing, with well-set paste stones. All paste stones are present, with none missing. The pin is straight and the hook work well, all are sturdy.
There are no damages or repairs. This must have been adored and cherished, despite being over 100 years old, it is in superb condition! There are some patina and has not been professionally cleaned. I leave this up to the new owner. I have only gently wiped with soft jewelry cleaning cloth.
Length Approximately: 6.8 cm x 4.1 cm.
Weight Approximately: 18.4 grams.
