Gold brooch of hollow construction taking the form of a six-petalled rose with an open, circular centre; the petals are inscribed. The reverse is also worked with a smaller six-petalled flower aligned differently and defined by areas of cross-hatching. The pin is integrated into the design by being cross-hatched or left plain as appropriate and is articulated by a swivelling motion which is likely to be achieved by an internal pin.
