Antique Victorian Yellow Gold Filled Taille d'Epargne Bar Pin Brooch #c775
This is a beautiful old gold filled taille d'epargne bar pin brooch. It features a long rectangular shape with lovely chased designs across its entire surface. Black enamel highlights a recessed design of lines, quatrefoils, and swirls that runs horizontally along the center of the brooch. Each end of the bar pin is accented with wonderful chased lines that resemble a fan or sunrise. The back of the brooch has a smooth finish and reveals an old tube hinge and c catch closure. It's a beautiful antique gem!

The brooch measures about 1 11/16 inches long, 1/4 inch wide and weighs 2.2 grams. It is unsigned which is common for antique jewelry pieces of this age. 

This is a gorgeous well-loved piece! It would make a great addition to an antique jewelry or bar pin collection. It does have patina from age, but this primarily evident on the back of the brooch. The tube hinge is not as tight as it was originally, having had over 100 years of use, but it still operates properly and the pin holds securely in the c catch. The pin has a shiny soft gold color that was hard to capture in my photos. It is much more beautiful in person! It's a marvelous find!
