This is a large Victorian Silver and agate brooch I was lucky enough to find at a car boot sale three years ago. It was absolutely black when I bought it but after a good clean the scalloped engraved silver frame (which is unmarked) came up a treat!

I have photographed the brooch against a white background to show the pretty mottled agate. The reverse has a good strong pin with tube hinge and ‘C’ clasp. Can you see how the pin extends out beyond the frame of the brooch? This is a good indication of an antique brooch.

    Yep! That's a treat trove ;-))
    The agate is a landscape by itself... I love your pieces! (And collect mainly brooches, lol)
