Antique Victorian Silver Swallow Bar Brooch
Charming Antique Victorian Silver Swallow Bar Brooch, the pierced bar with three applied swallows, and hand engraved detail.
The swallow has been long used in jewellery and tattoo design as a symbol for safe return home. Victorians were hugely sentimental and regularly employed symbols to convey meaning. Other examples include the horseshoe for luck, the anchor for hope and steadfastness, and a hand holding a flower for friendship.

SEDGWICKS pride ourselves on sourcing and selling Antique & Estate Jewellery that is of fine quality and in great condition.
Antique & Estate Jewellery is seldom in perfect or ‘new’ condition as age is inherent for it to be classified as such. Nearly all items we sell are ‘Second-hand’ and will almost certainly show some signs of wear. These may include faint scuffmarks and small dents, even very minor repairs. These are considered acceptable when dealing with objects that have lived a full life. Any imperfections or minor damage will be listed in the description and visible in the photo.
We do ask that you carefully view the photographs provided and note we are happy to supply more images or fuller description if requested.
To help you make your assessment, many higher value items are accompanied by an Independent Valuation for Retail or Insurance
