Condition report

Enamel brooch:
Enamel in good condition, no apparent chips or scratches.
Brooches appears to have previously been gilded, gilding worn.
'C' catch slightly bent.
Some tarnish and very minor surface marks to back of brooch.
Zircon brooch:
Abrasions/wear to the facet junctions of some of the zircons.
The end zircon appears to have come out of setting and been later glued back in at an angle. The glue appears to be secure but we recommend attention/re-setting of the stone by a professional setter. One claw to that stone probably needs re-tipping,
Silver tarnished.
The end sprig which the roller catch is soldered to the back of appears a little bent, so the roller catch is at a slight angle and hence pin does not move easily in and out of the roller catch.
