Taille d'épargne Brooch Victorian Bar Pin, Rolled Gold Antique Jewelry
This Taille d'épargne Victorian Bar Pin of rolled gold with black enamel is a small brooch pendant of 1880s vintage.
It measures 1 3/5 inch (42mm) long by 5/16 inch high and is decorated with a delicate enamel floral flower and leaf design suggestive of art nouveau fashion trends.
Closing with a simple C clasp, it also has a small loop on the back with which you can convert it to a pendant or add a chain or dangle.
This little antique pin was obviously loved, and worn often, by its original owner, for it shows signs of its 130 years, especially with a couple of dings and some scratches on the back, as shown in one of the images. The pin back is slightly crooked, but it still closes firmly. In spite of signs of oxidation / discoloration at the ends, the brooch has retained its shine - and its dignity.
For those who love Victorian jewelry, this charming piece will make a lovely addition to your collection.
Your brooch will arrive in a natural tan, cotton lined box, ready for giving or keeping.
