639F
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail

An unusual Georgian brooch, made circa 1800-1820, which represents the dove of Peace or Saint Esprit. Pieces like this were popular in the late eighteenth century as both religious icons and as sentimental jewellery. This piece is particularly pretty as it has a tiny heart suspended from the dove’s mouth with a forget me not flower set with tiny diamonds. On the reverse is a locket section which may have contained a piece of hair at some point. The dove’s eyes are set with tiny cabochon rubies.
