Condition Report:
This brooch is almost 150 years old and does have age-related wear. There is a small hairline crack above the flower in the stone- this does not run all the way through the stone. As mentioned, one of the enamel sections has been carefully repaird at some point in this brooch's life. One small chip in enamel- shown in close up photo. Some age-related wear to the metal. Overall a fantastic example of Victorian sentimental jewlery.
