A large Victorian Sterling Silver Brooch beautifully crafted with a scene depicting the Greek mythological god Hermes who was known in Roman mythology as Mercury. The figure appears to be climbing over a balcony and has a wing showing on his cap and 2 wings protruding from the ankle area of his right foot and he is holding his herald's staff with two entwined snakes in his right hand. The surrounding frame is embellished with flowers and has the British sterling silver hallmark for 1897 and the maker's mark 'SJ' concealed in the decoration. It is also marked with the number 12 on the back, which is possibly a design reference.

The Brooch is solid and substantial, slightly domed at the center it measures just over 2 inches across and 2 1/2 inches top to bottom and weighs 29 grams. It fastens with a tube hinged pin and 'C' clasp.

The Brooch is in excellent condition with no damage.
