Dating from the Victorian era this antique brooch is a very pretty gold knot with an old cut diamond claw set in yellow to the centre. Two strands of the knot are plain polished yellow whilst the other two are engraved with a rich foliate and scroll pattern. The brooch measures 0.82 inches in diameter making it a suitable size for everday wear as well as a special occasion piece. It fastens via a hinged pin and hook and lockable pin - all in good working order. A loop is attached to the top rear of the brooch which would be suitable for a safety chain or to add to a chain for neckwear.
