Antique Victorian Shield Brooch in Sterling Silver
A striking antique circular shield brooch, decorated with intricate geometric detail.
It is crafted in sterling silver & dates to the late Victorian period, bearing Birmingham hallmarks for 1882.
Originally designed as a locket brooch, the compartment to the rear still has its original frame which fits nice and snugly, though the original glass has gone astray. It could hold a photo as is, or could easily have a clear round insert fitted if preferred.
It is in excellent antique condition, the detail all very crisp with no dents or losses to the design. It fastens securely with its original C-clasp.
It measures 38mm wide and weighs 7.36g.
A delightful antique brooch with loads of Victorian character!
