This is a very sweet Victorian 12k yellow gold and enamel brooch in the form of a buckle, c. 1890. The pin is small - 3/4" x 5/8", but has wonderful detail with black and white taille d'epergne enamel. The brooch is in great condition with no loss to the enamel. The front is 12k gold and the back is gold filled. It has the original c-clasp, but the hinge has been replaced and it looks as though a hook has been removed from the back.
