Item description

This brooch is a good example of the finer pieces of Scottish jewellery popularised by Queen Victoria in the late 1800s. This piece dates from around 1880 and is set with carved bloodstones and jaspers, the hues of which echo the colours found in the landscapes of the Scottish Highlands. Of oval form, the frame surrounding a Maltese Cross, it is engraved with Celtic designs. 

Width approximately 46mm.

It is unhallmarked but tests as gold. It bears an indistinct registration mark.

Gross weight 13.60g.

Condition is fairly good and is certainly consistent with age and use. Some minor surface abrasions to the stones. Some historic restorations evident including the addition of a strengthening plate to the pin.
