A fine quality gilt silver, turquoise and ruby brooch pin in the form of a dove or swallow. This pin dates to the 19th century, circa 1850, and features five cabochon cut pieces of turquoise in the form of a 'forget me knot', along with two cabochon ruby 'eyes'. The piece appears to retain its original pin closure and overall is in lovely condition. There is a rich patina to the surface of the metal, which has accumulated over the decades and adds to the charm of this sweet pin.
