    I purchased this brooch at a resale. It is one of my favorites. It is a heavy metal black brooch with a golden peach. It measures 2" x 1.5". I have seen Victorian Hand brooches, but I am uncertain if this brooch is of that time period. Could this be a mourning brooch?

      I know I had a Victorian era doorknocker that looked just like this...all bronze tho. I would imagine the you chose was right but on the other hand (haha get it?) It doesn't seem likely they would do brooches and doorknockers design, so maybe this is a later one, don't know!

      I get it...on the other hand (haha!) Thanks for the information. It is heavy and right near the pin area, it is turning green. Does that indicate a certain metal? Could be a later one, I will do a little more research. You certainly gave me a place to start. Thanks again...

      To me it almost looks like Surrealism. Wonderful pin! Do you mean vertigris as in oxidation? Scrub that green away if you can before it spreads.

      Look on the end of the C clasp for a mark, as brooches are sometimes marked there. That green stuff is verdigris. It's corrosive and will ruin the metal. Some white vinegar on Q-Tip and a very soft toothbrush should remedy the problem.

      Thank you Valentino and Efesgirl for the information, I will clean asap.

      It's beautiful ..I would have thought 50's

      I cropped and enlarged the life out of it. There seems to be something on the C ring

      Lizzyscbw, I see small grooves. Now in the middle of the hand there is an etched K. Other than that, I can't see a signature. Thank you for the 50's, it gives me an idea of an era.
