The Victorians were well known for their sentiment and it shows, not least in their beautiful Mourning pieces.

This sweet antique Mourning brooch or lace pin is a typical design of the Georgian era that remained popular throughout the 19th century.

It is a small piece in a rectangular shape with a halo of flat cut Garnets around the outer rim, the Garnets encompassing a tiny glazed panel with a piece of silk beneath, usually holding hair but this one doesn't.

It is crafted in 9ct gold and has an old c type clasp and pin fastener.

It is engraved to the reverse M. W June 3rd 1839, aged 19.

Due to it's small size it was most probably a lace pin, used to secure the lengths of lace or fichu at the neck of both men and women, today it could be worn in many ways, on a collar or lapel, swagged on a chain or in a hat!
