Lovely Victorian Solid Silver, MIZPAH Sweetheart Brooch, Birm1893. Here is a really lovely victorian solid silver mizpah sweetheart brooch. The brooch measures over threequarters of a inch by over one & a half inches and is all made of victorian solid silver.
The brooch is a beautiful mizpah sweetheart brooch, with lovely typical early victorian/edwardian engravings in lovely detail and then across the centre, mizpah, across the middle and then with the beautiful sentiment, which says, The lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent from one another, the mizpah prayer & has ball finials around the edge. The brooch has a pin but is missing its Cclasp which can easily be replaced & has a full set of english hallmarks for Birmingham, silver & 1893 & makers mark of H&W & just has wear as you would associate with age & wear, see pics. These sweetheart brooches were given to loved ones as signs of esteem love and affection, as gifts especially when parted from one another with hidden meanings as love tokens with none more poignant than the mizpah examples, with its beautiful words and often these were given to loved ones when men went off to war, so these would have been very cherished.
This really is a lovely victorian/edwardian sweetheart brooch in good origional, condition as stated and a lovely quality example of these.
