Art Nouveau, 15ct, 15k, 625 Yellow Gold swift, swallow, bird brooch, pin
A pretty Art Nouveau, Victorian Swallow brooch featuring a swooping swallow or swift bird in flight.
The brooch is beautifully created out of 15carat gold and is complete with gold pin and C clasp fitting.
Hallmarked 15ct (denotes 15carat gold)
This sentimental, sweetheart brooch was most likely given to a loved one, from someone departing for war or travel, as the swallow is the first bird that is seen by sailors when returning to land.
So the hidden message would be ” I will return to you”
