Cute little round mourning brooch, showing sterling silver lion stamp on the side and makers mark initialed what looks like F.B. Usually these little silver brooches have a hollow on the reverse where either hair or a photo of the lost loved one is placed. This brooch may have had a frame to keep the keepsake in but it is missing, if there ever was one I cannot say for sure. Signed silver With Lion, a tri T shape of numbers 1.3. and 3 below (?) and initial “B”, makers initials F.B. Round brooch with a dome setting, scalloped around the edge and decorative inbetween 1 1/4” wide Condition is very good with patina wear proportionate to the brooch's age, the only issue to note is that the hook latch for the clasp is rather small and inefficient.
