A charming Victorian duck brooch. This piece features a wonderfully detailed mallard duck, with a multicolour enamel head in blue, green, and orange enamel with a fine yellow gold beak. The body of the duck is set with scintillating diamonds. This sweet piece follows in the Victorian tradition of hunting jewellery and would add a touch of Victorian whimsy to the lapel of a tweed blazer.
