I don't think that I would be stepping out of line to call this piece one-of-a-kind. The large copper brooch is a shield which features a lion rampant. The top three points of the shield have been rolled over. The earrings are also small shields, also with the rolled over top. The earrings each have a diagonal band of incised stars. They are screw back earrings.
The piece is clearly hand crafted. The shield has been cut and curved and the edges hand hammered. The lion has then been applied to the shield with solder. The lion's features have been incised in to the lion. The earrings have been hand hammered. The are slightly curved and the design incised.
The piece is in very good condition with some very light surface corrosion and some scuffing. It looks as though there is a bit of solder on the lion. The solder that holds the pin in place has been very sloppily applied. The screw backs on the earrings are in good working order.
The brooch measures 2-7/8" high by 1-7/8" wide. The earrings are 1-1/8" high by 7/8" wide.
