  1. It's definitely not a love token. Brooch is french, one mark is for silver (i suppose it's boar's head) and another is maker's mark. Unfortunately, I can't read it.
  2. Wow! Thank you so much, Bill! I've never heard about love tokens, so it can be love story that makes this brooch even more interesting :)
  3. Thanks, Bill! The clasp looks like long c-clasp but it's probably broken trombone. And brooch has round hinge also.
  4. Elisabethan, thank you for so detailed responce! Now I realized that glass cap can be opened :) Marking this mystery solved!
  5. What is the length of the fan? Looks quite small.
  6. This fan form is called "fontange" and it was popular in 1890-1910s (Art Nouveau).
  7. Looks like chinese export fans from first half on 19th century :) http://www.philamuseum.org/collections/permanent/208536.html?mulR=1980192031%7C41
  8. Agate1122303, thank you, I'll try to ask my mom if she remembers the age of this brooch.
