Antique mid Victorian 14k yellow gold black enamel Taille d'Epargné mother of pearl mourning memento mori brooch pin. Hand engraved "Alida Lansing" on the back. A nice sized piece measuring 1-1/2" x 1-1/8", mother of pearl measures 1-1/8" x 3/4". The back of the brooch has an early style hinged tube assembly with "C" hook clasp and extended pin stem, all 100% original. In outstanding extremely well babied condition. With hollow body, yet thick construction with a nice weight and feel. Also looks wonderful as a pendant, just slide the chain through the pin stem. Typical of the majority of authentic Victorian jewels (particularly hand crafted pieces such as this), the piece is not gold hallmarked, but has been carefully tested by two independent jewelers to guarantee 14k solid gold content/purity. Circa 1880 to 1890. Circa mid 1800's. So elegant!
