Lovely little antique brooch dating from around 1890 in the shape of a lyre with five strings. Beautifully crafted in 18 carat gold, it is adorned all over with seed pearls and is marked 'SS18' on the reverse. I believe this is an old Australian hallmark, although I have so far been unable to identify the maker. It is in good used condition, fastening with a strong hinged pin and curly 'c' clasp on the back.
This would make a super gift for a musician, music lover or concert goer, and measures approximately 27mm x 20 (1 1/16" x 13/16")..
