Today I have the idea to show you something special namely this mourning brooch although in my opinion. An altar depicted in pearl with candle, a canopy, flowers and twigs. On the canopy seem, looking through a magnifier, two birds on both sides. The oval picture behind glass, is bordered by a rim of small pearls. The front edge of the brooch is nicely decorated with very little "sparklers" and the mounting is 14ct (Dutch carat) rose gold. The back pin and c-clasp is vermeil either gold over silver.
The brooch can probably open because there is a kind of groove in the edge but I dare not good to try because I'm afraid something damaging. The brooch has, seen from the side, also a special form wide at both ends and small in the middle section.
The last photo I show you some of my mourning pieces.
All in all I've never seen such a piece. I either don't know dating.
Who can tell me more or any suggestions?
