Fantastic Victorian Archery Brooch Pin Sterling Silver

This fantastically detailed brooch was likely given as an award for an archery competition. I found it in London while strolling the markets of Portobello Road on a Saturday morning. I had been shopping all week and had a bit of jewelry fatigue (I know, it doesn’t seem like a real thing, but after looking at many hundreds of pieces, you get a bit jaded!). I was drinking a latte and munching on a pain au raisin from the fabulous Gail’s Bakery and waiting for something to just jump out at me; and along came this brooch, it does not disappoint!

This wonderful piece was hand crafted in England and assayed on April 24th, 1865 according to the kite mark right on the front. It’s done in sterling silver and measures 49.6x47.5 mm. It is gorgeously engraved and has the letters G.R. & Co. hidden amongst the engraving at the top of the quiver, I don’t know wether this is a makers mark or perhaps the winner of a competition? This brooch weighs 9.9 grams.
