Today I want to share this silver brooch with wonderful shamrock/clove leaf etching and a orange or ambercolored stone. I'm thinking this is from the first part of the 1900th Century. It is marked 826 TL. First I thought it might be norweigan or danish but the look of the brooch is more scottish or irish to me, so is the etching. I haven't been able to find the maker, and I need help to narrow down the search. The stone might also be glass, it's very hard and somewhat cold to the touch.
The shamrock/clove could indicate it's irish but it could also just stand for good fortune. Greatful for ideas, thanks! I'm aware this is not sterling but for now I will post this in fine jewelry as I think it's more right than costume jewelry in this case.
Added information: The brooch is 4 x 4 cm and the stone is 1,5 cm across and 1,22 cm "deep".
