VICTORIAN CITRINE BROOCH Antique GOLD FILLED Black Enamel 1867 DEATH 28 x 21mm. A large Victorian era Citrine Brooch with markings to commemorate the death of R.We are pleased to present this Victorian era Citrine Brooch for your consideration. With a hook on the back, the Brooch looks like it started life as a Pendant, then was later modified by the addition of a pin on the back.
The piece commemorates a death, with a marking on the back reading: R. The Brooch is oval shaped and quite large. It measures about 1.4 inches by 1.7 inches, and is 0.7 inch deep at the center.
The Citrine stone measures 1 inch by 0.85 inch (28 mm by 21 mm). The weight of the Brooch is 24.6 grams.
The top is decorated with an engraved abstract design with the lines filled with black enamel for visibility. Some worn areas on the back reveal the underlying metal which appears to be copper. The surface appears to be gold filled, but there are no composition or maker marks. The pin back is in working order, and the Brooch is free of any damage. We rate the overall condition as very good to excellent (see pictures).
This is a beautiful Victorian era piece with an impressively large Citrine stone. It will be sure to attract attention and compliments, and would make a wonderful addition to any collection!This item is in the category "Jewelry & Watches\Vintage & Antique Jewelry\Mourning Jewelry".
