Antique Victorian 9ct Gold Black Enamel and Butterfly Wing Mourning Brooch Pin. A beautiful miniature antique Victorian brooch.
Made of solid 9ct gold. A mourning brooch with initials in black enamel. The brooch is gorgeous and ornate with tiny flower motifs around the edges.
The center features a glass locket panel, which is holding inside a piece of iridescent butterfly wing. Victorians used butterfly wing in their jewellery to add a gorgeous colour.
A tiny work of art, measuring 2.1 x 1.8 cms in size with the pin being a little longer than this. With'C' clasp and tension pin. The brooch is unmarked but tests as solid 9ct gold.
In fair antique condition with some age related tarnish and wear. The butterfly wing has some light deterioration and has browned in some places. The enamel has some chips. The C clasp looks to be a replacement for the original. This item, along with the others in our Dear Rose, With Love shop, has been hand selected by us, for you.We sell only estate, vintage, and antique items - which means we only ever have one of each piece. The pieces of jewellery offered by us are old treasures, and we rarely find two identical. Once each piece has gone, it's truly gone, and you will likely never find another!
