A mid 19th century 18ct gold citrine brooch with cannetille work. Estimated dimensions of central oval-shape citrine 15 by 12 by 5.8mms. Citrines generally well-matched, in good condition. The mark is the French restrike mark for 18ct gold. It is slightly indistinct but it depicts an owl with ‘75’, to signify the 75% gold purity. Sometimes you will see the owl without the numbers but this is the French assay mark. It is not uncommon for the pin to be a different colour to the main metal of the brooch.
