Currently I'm in the U.K. staying with family and for once the weather as been absolutely beautiful. I decided to take a walk and go to the market, which is a good old fashion market town. I came across this brooch while I was browsing the stalls, for some reason I was attracted towards this brooch, as people who follow my posting know I'm trying to keep away from brooches but I love the colours which are lovely summer colours, so I took the plunge and bought it.
There are no markings, I tested the metal which I believe to be high grade silver. There is damage which you can see from the back and very slight nibbling at the front consummate with the age plus it's quite heavy at 8 grams. I would love to know if anybody would have an idea of the maker, also is the design a flower or insect or anything else. I think it could be either Victorian or Edwardian.
Many thanks for looking
