This is a beautifully made Gold brooch in the Etruscan Revival Style, tests at least 9 carat gold and has original locket back for a photo or lock of hair.
The applied wire work is very nicely done and the brooch is in very good condition as the photos show.
The brooch has been mercury gilded in pure gold over the 9 carat giving it a buttery appearance. This was common in jewellery made in the 19th century.
