This is a 1800-century brooch from Sweden. It is made of goldplated filigreesilver in the shape of a heart. A large red, probably glass, stone is set in the centre. This type of jewelry was often used as bridaljewelry by the commons. I found some very similar ones in a museum, they were given to the museum in the 1830´s -1880´s. It´s not really right to post this as victorian as this isn´t english but that´s the only way to post this and show it´s age. I am certain it´s from the 1800's century, but this brooch could even be previctorian but that I don´t know for sure. These type of jewelry and jewelry used for traditional clothing was excluded from the rules of being marked, unfortunately.
