Description
18 kt. Silver, Yellow gold - Brooch, Pendant Emerald - Diamond
Size: ca 5 x 5 cm - Total weight: 10.4 g

An early 19th century brooch/pendant (1809–1814) in yellow gold, with diamonds set in 925 silver on the front.

The brooch is marked with an 'E' cartouche above a gondola in water with a rooster looking to the right. This mark was used in the Southern Netherlands for 18 kt gold in the 1809–1814 period, the French period. The marks are stamped on the pin and also on the inside. The E possibly stands for Etranger, foreign works.
The brooch also shows the later import marks from D. Aubert, as well as marks by Waarborg Holland for 18 kt gold and 1st grade silver (the eyelet).

One rose has been replaced by an octagonal one at a later date, see photos.
