Lovely Victorian brooch with aesthetic period detailing including an etched crane or heron with vegetation, geometric pattern, and decorative beaded edge. The brooch has a c-clasp and measures approximately 1.75 inches by 1.375 inches. It is not marked but tests as sterling silver and weighs 5.7 grams.
We think this may have been a mourning brooch as there is a lip along the edges of the back which would have allowed for a glass piece and photo or hair of a loved one. The glass is missing but the brooch is in excellent condition overall with only very minor signs of age that do not detract.
