Antique Victorian/Edwardian Black Enamel & Seed Pearl Crescent Mourning Brooch (Code A638)
An antique brooch in the form of a slim crescent and set with a silver coloured seed pearl. The body of the brooch is brass. The brooch is either late Victorian or early Edwardian in period. The crescent symbolises female strength and the black is for mourning so this item was perhaps symbolic of the death of a female member of the family. The seed pearl is symbolic for tears which is of course appropriate for this item. It has a very nice slender form being both subtle and elegant.
