What a glorious little bird brooch!
This antique 9ct Gold Pearl bird brooch is a real thing of beauty, made around the year 1900. It has a whimsical, elegant design, and we simply adore the way the bird is carrying a tiny Seed Pearl in its mouth... it's just charming!
It comes with what appears to be the original E.Selgroves satin and velvet-lined leather box, which like the brooch itself is in exceptional condition.
It would make a fantastic gift no matter what the occasion, but we think it would be especially apt as a wedding gift, as birds were often linked with love and romance.
The brooch looks great as is, or is a great candidate for conversion into a stunning ring or necklace. If you're interested in converting this brooch please get in touch for any help or advise!

CONDITION: Very Good
A superb antique 9ct Gold bird brooch is very good condition, and is ready to be worn or gifted. We cannot say how thrilled we are to have such a gorgeous piece of history in our collection- especially with the original box! All parts of the brooch, including the setting and all those pretty Pearls are original and antique, and the Pearls still have a fantastic lustre and shine. There is a small ding on the Gold sphere on the left hand side of the brooch, but this is no very noticeable whn worn, an the brooch is still of solid construction.The brooch opens and closes securely with a smooth and pleasing motion, and is suitable to wear even on thicker fabric such as wool or tweed as the pin is quite robust. A real quality piece of early 20th century jewellery.
The antique leather jewellery box is also in very good condition. It opens and closes shut tight and keeps the brooch snugly in place.
