Yellow Metal

Overall Condition: Good
Condition Notes: A bunch of Victorian goodies! The motifs are varied and typical of the period: swallows, bold taille d'épargne enamel items, fobs, and a lovely portrait of a woman with rosy cheeks. So much to offer in this grouping. All brooches are completed by pinstem and catch. Few are marked except when indicated, metal has been tested. Minor tarnish on most items. The taille d'épargne earrings show minor enamel loss, the hook and latch back findings are modern, not original to the piece. Gold-filled earrings are completed by posts, missing one friction back.
