A perfect little antique Victorian 'violin" brooch, measuring 1 and 7/8 of an inch long and 6/8 of an inch wide. The brooch is hallmarked with the maker's initials "J A & S" , the anchor hallmark for provenance "Birmingham" and the "lion" sterling mark and "b" marking the date as 1901. The clasp and pin are in order, and typically Victorian. All is working and the condition is excellent. The brooch weighs 5.2 grams.
