Antique Gilded Victorian Mourning Brooch Circa Late 1800's
An extremely nice example of an antique mounting brooch. It holds the original portrait of Victorian lady, circa the late 1800's. The brooch has a twisted rope design around the center, with a blue and white enamel design. As is typical of brooches from this era, the pin is a bit wider than the brooch. It has the original tube hinge and "C" clasp, which are in excellent condition. The back can be taken off to remove and/or add a picture. This antique brooch is in very good condition with just minimal normal signs of wear. It is not signed.
Brooch measures approximately 1 1/4" in diameter.
