This brooch has the mark of Knut Andreas Rasmussen, Oslo Norway. It is a viking revival buckle brooch. It has the mark for silver 830 finess and on the c-clasp there is a swedish import mark that guarantee that the 830 finess is right. Knut Andreas Rasmussen founded the company in 1872. I don't know the age of the brooch but the tube hinge and the c-clasp together with the viking revival them tells me it is from around the time of art noveau (around 1890-1920).
