Beautiful embossed silver metal brooch with flowers. The brooch or pin measures 1 1/2"x 1 1/4" and about 1/4" thick. The front has engraved flowers and leaves and an ornate scalloped border. The flowers are tinted a coppery pink, some leaves have pale gold highlights.
The reverse has an opening to a compartment which would have contained a lock of hair and a photo. There is currently a small piece of black fabric and acetate present. This is shown in the photo and is easily removed and can be replaced with a new piece of clear plastic over your own photo or keepsake. (I can make a piece of plastic for you - just ask.)
The original Victorian hinge clasp works well and has no issues.
There are no markings and silver content is uncertain, though tests indicate 800 silver or better. Condition is excellent for its age.
SuzansTreasures is moving - we are reducing our current inventory and will reopen in our new location in the fall.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: silver, Size: one size fits all
