Victorian ornate gilded brass collar pin or brooch with draping chains c.1900 is being offered for your consideration. The brooch is in wonderful condition and was most likely a collar brooch, meant to adorn a neckline or attach a ladies collar to a blouse or dress; today it makes a stunning lapel brooch, tie tack or scarf pin for today's wardrobes. It measures 1 3/4 by 1 3/8 inches ( including chains ). The pin back is the typical pinned roll Victorian design, pin is straight and the locking "C" clasp functions properly. The dangling chains have two different link styles; a flat polished circular link and a twisted textured oval link and appear to be gold filled, they are not marked and have not been tested. This displays desirable age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the finish, nothing in my opinion which detracts from its stunning appeal (some might consider small signs of vintage use undesirable), I revel in a find like this as proof that affirms the age and authenticity of the piece, it will receive a gentle professional hand cleaning, if needed, but no attempt will be made to cover up its vintage previous 100 plus beautiful years of life.
