I'm not in love, but when I see this very touching little brooch I would almost wish to be or fall in love.
This is a silver gilt filigree heart brooch with a small white enameled flower in the center of the two hearts and the arrow in blue enamel.
It's probably Chinese and old, I am moved. Do you agree with me?

    Hi Agram. These are sweet. Why do I get a Scottish feel from them? Must be the shape of the heart as they also look Chinese.

    AmberRose, thanks for looking, loving and comment. And I have realy no idea where comes your Scottish feel from. But of course neither am I certain of the fact that this brooch is indeed Chinese. There are three marks and I cannot decode. So it could also be Scottish. Perhaps there comes another view on this?

    Why the Scottish feeling? They have a lot of the double hearts. Crown on the heart (Mary queen of Scott's) Fletched arrow typical.
    But! Cant find anything that looks to be this style from Scottland.
    Just trying to prove I'm not crazy here :))

    AmberRose you are right, about the Scottish hearts and arrow but the way of fabrication filigree in combination with enamel makes my feeling it's Chinese, but still not sure!

    My guess would be Switzerland.
