This is a Victorian bar brooch, which is made of 9Ct gold and features a silver Terrier dog. The bar is 5cm long, and the inside has the old stamp of 9 Ct on it, which was used in Victorian and Edwardian times. The dog is 1.5cm long and 1.4cm high. It is very well made with clear definitions. The catch has an extra safety hook, which I am not sure how to operate (see photo), but other people seem to do it quite naturally, so I know that it works. The brooch is in good condition and would make a lovely present for dog lovers. Unfortunately the original box does no longer exist, but I can send it in a plain silver coloured cardboard box.
