This oval Victorian brooch is made of 10K yellow gold, black enamel, and pearls and is a beautiful and pristine example of turn of the century mourning jewelry.

Its true appeal, however, is that just under the pin mechanism on the back, the name "M.E. Flanagin" is engraved. We did some digging and one name came up. Martha E. Flanagin, who died in 1904, was the widow of the first post-Civil War governor of Arkansas, Harris Flanagin.

While there's no way to guarantee that this brooch belonged to, or was dedicated to the memory of, Mrs. Flanagin, both the time period and the name perfectly match up.

We've included a photograph of her obituary from the Fort Smith Times of Fort Smith, Arkansas, dated April 25, 1904.

Jewelry is meant to be worn, but it's also an expensive ornament. Here are a few helpful suggestions to extend the life of your jewelry:

  • We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or your trusted local jeweler every six months.
  • You should remove your rings before swimming or performing any household cleaning, as harsh chemicals can interact with precious metals and permanently damage some stones.
  • Generally, we suggest that you do not wear your jewelry to the gym, in the shower, or while sleeping.

We do not believe in selling something we cannot service. Should an issue arise, please get in touch. We offer an extensive range of repair services and are here to help!
