An antique 9ct gold (tested) and paste brooch/pin in the shape of an eye. Eye brooches were very popular in Georgian times to conceal the identity of a secret lover, this probably had a painting of an eye in at some time and is probably from that period. There is a tiny hole in the back near the hinge part of the pin, this is so a pin can be used to push the glass out of the front so a photo, painting etc., could be placed inside. The glass has chamfered edges. There is also a loop so a bale can be added to wear this as a pendant. It measures approx. 1 3/16" x 13/16" and weighs 5.2g. A
Gender: Unisex, Age Group: Adult, Color: Gold, Size: 1 3/16" x 13/16"
