This neat old piece is of brass with black enamel possibly for mourning; however, black was worn often enough outside of mourning. A piece like this is more somber and in keeping with mourning attire. It has a 1.75”x1/4” pin part to attach to clothing. Attached to this a section 1”x3/4” set with a decorative 3/4” Fleur de Lis drop hook that can be folded up, down, or left straight out. From this hook a watch or chatelaine can easily be attached.
This has some paint wear as shown mainly to the pin portion, but all works fine. A truly neat old piece of Victorian finery!
