Antique Victorian miner’s brooch in 15-carat gold, from about 1890
1 in stock
Miners’ brooches, a relic of the great gold rushes of the 19th century, are a charming oddity.
The motifs are various mining tools, usually arranged – as here – in a horizontal cross. This example is made from 15-carat gold and retains its original bloomed finish.
The workmanship is finer than usual, as seen in the delicate sieve and the rope around the pick and shovel.
I love that the original hanging gold nugget is still present too.
