The brooch was the most important piece of jewellery in Norwegian traditional dress.

In the 1860s, Norwegian silversmiths working in the main towns started to make fashionable jewellery in traditional Norwegian styles.

Jacob Tostrup was one of the leaders of this movement.

It is marked on the back with full silver marks for the period. 13 ¼ L stands for 828 standard silver, and was used before around 1880.

TOSTRUP 1871 is the maker’s mark and date of manufacture.

CHRISTIANIA is the old name for Oslo, the Norwegian capital. It was renamed Oslo in 1925

The brooch measures 6cm in diameter

In nice condition for age, it has lost two full drops and two partial drops but these are not particulary noticable when worn
