A lovely antique 14kt Gold Brooch which is fitted with a safety chain. The Brooch is marked on the safety clasp '14K' (although this mark is quite rubbed) and is also marked on the back with the Maker's Mark, although again this is quite worn and the only part that I can decipher is '& Co'.
The Brooch measures 1 inch in diameter and fastens with an older style safety clasp. The Brooch weighs 3 grams - although it is possibly slightly over, I do not have professional Jeweler's scales so cannot be completely accurate.
In excellent condition, there is a very slight 'kink' in the ridged pattern, which corresponds with the placing of the pin hinge. It is barely noticeable and has possibly always been this way since the pin hinge was first attached. It is just barely visible in my pictures, which will give you an idea of how little it affects the appearance of the brooch.
