Vitorian Egyptian Revival Brooch Queen Nefertiti, Beetle, Ankh Sterling Silver/Gold Wash, 1.5", 11.05gr.
Victorian Sterling Silver Egyptian Brooch with gold wash (or gold?) wash. It has a cut-out center featuring a beetle, a Large Queen Nefertiti and Ankh cut-out in the center with a silver frame around that and then a textured almost rope/filigree outer frame that has a gold wash look to it on the second frame in. This has a C clasp with a pin that extends slightly beyond the frame - late 1800's to 1910. It is marked with stamped maker's mark at the back of the Queen toward the frame - I cannot make out what the mark is. The pinback is built into the frame of the brooch and the pin itself is gold color that did test at least as gold filled. The weight of the pin is 11.05 grams. If that is gold rather than gold wash this will be a great find for the buyer. Definitely a quality piece that is over 100 years old based on the pinback design. This came from a PA estate sale. Good condition. See photos. Lot. Loc. Win.1.2816.1X1 - LD 2/1/17.

I do not store fine jewelry and for questions on fine jewelry please allow some time for a response. I respond quickly but sometimes I cannot answer immediately and need a few hours until the answer can be provided.

Photos are magnified so things will appear larger than they are and they are likely in better condition than the photos depict due to the magnification.
Thank you for stopping by.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
