Description

The back of this interesting and delicate antique solid 9ct gold mourning brooch comes out so that keepsakes of a loved one can be kept and a photo displayed.  The total weight is 5.68 grams and the oval shape is 38 x 34 mm.  The colour black and the mourning brooch was made popular by Queen Victoria who remained in mourning for her husband Prince Albert for the last 40 years of her life.  This piece is interesting in that it is not mostly black.  Predominant gold, like this, would have been considered flambouyant for a mourning brooch in the 1900s.  The single seed pearl in the middle, symbolizing tears, however, is highly suggestive of mourning.  If not this brooch, you might also be interested in this antique Hand Carved Cameo Brooch in 9ct Gold
