For sale is an absolutely beautiful Antique 1880s Gold Plated Silver Swivel Mourning Brooch. The centre of the brooch spins 360 degrees, with the front featuring a photograph of the deceased girl wearing a Scottish tartan skirt, the deceased girl an original mourning photograph. In this photograph the child has passed away, and in the final photograph I have ringed the signs that show she is deceased. On her right shoulder you can see part of the stand holding the position of the girl upright, on the left arm you can see a stand propping the other arm up, with the hand in a very loose relaxed position- with the nails starting to darken. Her eyes are have a very glassy effect, often glass eyes were put in after death, and her feet are in a crossed position keeping her in position. The photograph has a slight colour tint to it to which makes it that little bit more special! The back of the mourning brooch reveals a elegantly weaved hair panel in the back. The frame of the brooch has four quarterly sections with engraved floral patterns on. This is a very elegant mourning brooch dating back to the 1880s. 

 

This brooch is in beautiful condition! The only issue with this is one of the quarter sections has come loose by the hinge of the brooch pin so please see photographs this can easily be fixed! Please see photos for more details. Guaranteed original or the money back guarantee. This will be sent via special delivery and dispatched within two to three working day’s.
