Georgian 14k Gold Enamel Mourning Brooch Pin With Name & Date 1829 Antique
This is a late Georgian mourning brooch, likely from England. The brooch is in memory of Ann Barker, who died at age 60 in 1829. Made from solid 14 karat (possibly 15k) yellow gold, this antique mourning brooch has black enamel on the front with the phrase In Memory Of. Braided hair is encased in glass, surrounded by French jet and pearls. On the back, the pin has been inscribed with Anns obituary. I acquired this piece from a gold dealer who uses newer technology to test gold.

I also tested this piece with acid to confirm, as these brooches are typically not stamped. The pin is either sterling silver or steel.

A chip in the enamel under the letter Y. It is not noticeable until you inspect the piece. At one time there had been a piece to either clip on to something or to wear this as a pendant which has broken off. You may consider having a jeweler who works on antiques file it off or restore it.

Some wear to the jet glass. Brooch measures 1 across and 3/4 tall. Weighs approx 6.5 grams. The item "Georgian 14k Gold Enamel Mourning Brooch Pin With Name & Date 1829 Antique" is in sale since Wednesday, January 9, 2019.
