Almond-shaped brooch contained within a glazed, gold alloy setting surrounded by clear glass paste stones. The brooch comes complete with a suspension ring, so that it can also be worn as a pendant. There is also an attachment for a brooch pin, which is now missing. The front of the brooch contains a miniature, painted on card and ornamented with seed pearls. The miniature depicts a female figure leaning on an altar. The back of the brooch is inscribed 'Horatio Nelson to Lady Hamilton 1796'. The inscription, which is thought to be dubious in origin, relates to Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) and Emma, Lady Hamilton (circa 1765-1815). There is an empty compartment at the back of the brooch, which is lined with silk. The brooch was discovered in 1865, in a pawnshop in Brussels, by Captain Molyneux.
