VERY GOOD. A Lovely example of a Victorian Silver Scottish Agate Anchor Brooch in very good condition. The grey and white banded Agate is beautiful, with no chips, cracks or abrasions, and is still set securely after over 150 years! The rope does move a little but this is by design, and is very typical of thees antique Victorian anchor brooches.This piece is officially a brooch but could easily be hing on a chain and worn as a pendant, if you think you'd like to wear it like this please let us know and we can dull or shorten the pin slightly, free of charge, so it won't prick you or get caught it any of your clothes.
