This 15ct gold brooch is a portrait of the Nawab of Lucknau, circa 1830.

A Nawab is an honorific title bestowed by the reigning Mughal Emperor to semi-autonomous Muslim rulers of princely states in South Asia. “Nawab” usually refers to males; the female equivalent is “Begum” or “Nawab Begum”. The primary duty of a Nawab was to uphold the sovereignty of the Mughal Emperor along with the administration of a certain province.

The title of “Nawab” was also awarded, similar to a British peerage, to persons and families who ruled a princely state.
