Victorian MIZPAH Twin-Heart Brooch in Sterling Silver

USD Approx. $0

A sweet sentimental antique brooch from the late Victorian era.
It is designed as a pair of hearts joined by a padlock & key, with a songbird on one side and a “MIZPAH” message engraved on the other: “the lord watch between me & thee when we are absent one from another”.
Sentimental jewellery (and mizpah themed jewellery in particular) were fantastically popular in the Victorian period. This romantic piece is a lovely example!
Employing a combination of delicate hand engraving with applied detail which stands out in relief, it is in excellent antique condition with no losses to the edging beads and minimal wear to the design. It fastens securely with its original C-clasp.
Measuring 4cm in length and weighing 4.02g, it bears full sterling silver hallmarks for Birmingham 1901 to the rear.
A charmingly romantic antique brooch!
