This looks Austrain-Hungarian (1867-1918) but I´m looking for clues to come to an answers :) I have the feeling this could even be older, before 18th century. Hoping someone will recognize the marks.
When you hold it you know it´s really old. It might have been a button from the beginning, later made into a brooch. It´s small only 2,2 cm (under 1 inch) in diameter. There is some sort of handpainted enamel in white, black and vague touches of blue and red. The turqouises looks "unworked" while the almandines have an old cut. The setting of the stones also tells of age.
I will show the marks and closeups in post nr 2.
Really really greatful for help!
