I found this little beauty at one of my favorite London shows - fully hallmarked (date letter for 1893) Aesthetic era brooch featuring a swallow - the British claim it is a lucky bird - on the front. Has a glass-covered chamber on the reverse that holds a vintage photo of a young girl (as found). The attached, dainty little safety chain (easily removed, if you wish, shows that this piece was once a cherished item. Sterling Silver. Measures 1.75 inches long, about 1.25 inches across. Weighs 10.9 grams. A charming representation of a bygone era - you'll love it!
