    The more I look at this piece , the more impressed I am with the detailed workmanship ! It also appears to be more of a "one off" than a large production piece ( small scale benchworked) Also it clearly shows green , red , and yellow gold alloys - this a good bit of goldsmithing - I too think banner is well deserved here !

    Thank you! If I can find my loupe, I'll take some pics of those spots. The pics from my cell phone just don't do it justice. In person, whatever is in the flower and vase has a very deep purple color to it. I can't figure out what it is for sure. The inlay in the square behind the vase looks to be onyx, or at least a very sleek black enamel.

    I agree! Whoever made this definitely knew what they were doing. I didn't even notice the detail around the edges until I was taking pictures of it. I love handmade jewelry. Each piece is like a snowflake in the detail and no two are the same!

    It does look as though the flowers were presented against a black enamel background - that has me thinking this could be " mourning jewelry " Also the underside is deep enough to have contained a small locket of hair or other memento of the deceased (typically under crystal) this particular jewelry became popular again after the death of Prince Albert in 1861-(Queen Victoria's husband)

    The craftsmanship is fantastic. You have to wonder if a soldier carried that to remind him of his love back home. Sure beats a Williams cleaner any day!

    That's definitely banner from me, bud! And CONGRATS! Must be heavy as hell.

    I'd lay a touch of gold leaf foil over the missing/broken flower, which would clean it up totally. Probably do the same over the flowerpot. Looks amazing as it is though. Great find!

    Nice find!

    Any theory on what it was for? Could it have been on a ribbon? like those on a GAR ribbon?

    What is the measurements?
