Ask a question

This cute gold brooch is hallmarked for Birmingham 1896, and is typical of the light-hearted jewels produced in England around the end of the 19th century.

Interestingly, it is dated for the year the modern Olympic Games began.

Though it’s handcrafted in nine-carat gold, the colour is a rich yellow gold.

It’s probably gilded in high-carat gold – this was common practice at the time – which has never worn off.

The details are delightful … you can even see the texture of the bicycle chain.


• Handmade in nine-carat yellow gold
• Approximately 1.7cm tall, 3.1cm wide
• Weight is 3.8 grams
• In excellent antique condition
• Will come in a Karen Deakin gift box
