A very fine example of a Regency brooch that was made circa 1820. It is a beautiful model of a dove holding a sprig in it’s beak. It is two colour 15ct gold and is set with turquoise on the wings and tail, and a “forget me not” flower set with turquoise. The dove’s eyes are small cabochon rubies. On the reverse is a locket which contains a lock of hair. Similar examples can be seen in the Hull Grundy collection at the British museum. It is in excellent condition.
