    In the second half of the 19th century, archaeologists were capturing the imagination of the Victorian public with their breathtaking excavations of Etruscan tombs in Italy.The discovery of those Etruscan tombs inspired jewelers to re-create some of the amazing treasures that these ancient people took along with them into the afterlife. Therefore antique Etruscan jewelry got a revival and this jewelry is distinctive and elaborate.
    This brooch is such an example. Made by a very good craftsman and a well made example of this type of jewelry.
    This round brooch has a diameter of 3 cm and is provided with a safety chain and pin. Unfortunately the round glass back is missing.

    Does anyone know how I could get a new round glass with a diameter of 22.2 / 22.3 mm?
    The brooch was made in England. Perhaps you can help me with the 4 hallmarks, see photo.
    .375 and a 9 which means 9ct gold. Than the hallmark of the city of Chester. Then what I probably can see the letter L = 1894.
    Mystery solved thanks you all for help!

      Agram, beautiful brooch!! The city mark is for Chester. The 9 is for 9 Carat which is similar to .375 gold. I hope this helps.

      AGRAM ..... flip photo 4 180 degrees!
    16. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      Photo 3 too! That way you'll have Chester city mark, 9, .375 and another mark. That's the unclear thing at the moment.
    17. Agram.m Agram.m, 7 years ago
