Victorian Silver Gilt Angel Brooch -19 th Century Jewellery (SOLD)

This brooch dates from the  English Victorian period ( probably around the 1880's to the turn of the century ) but as there are no hallmarks it could have been made in continental Europe.  It is a beautiful item made of silver with gilding.  The Angel or Cherub has a detailed face with curly hair.  His wings feature finely engraved feathers which have been gold washed, a technique the French refer to as Vermeil.  The whole thing appears to have been made by a casting process.   On the reverse there is a very long 19th type pin with the old-fashioned 'c' type fastening.  There is also a loop which would allow the piece to be worn from a chain. The quality is truely exceptional!  The piece measures approx 5 cms (2ins) from wing tip to wing tip and about 2.75 cms (1inch) across at its widest point.
