On the back there are some deep creases but not cracked through yet. One seed pearl is missing.I don't see any missing or cracked enamel. The inscription on the back reads Margaret Nichols Died Dec. The domed top is removable and inside would have held hair or a memento of a loved one. It was on pretty tight but I was able to pop it off using my watch repair knife. Be very careful removing it or you could damage the enamel. This top piece is enamel over copper with the rim in sterling silver. The gold & seed pearl piece is wired through this lid. The brooch weighs 35.7 grams. Excluding the lid piece, it weighs 25.3 grams. Measures 2 1/2" x 1 7/8". Any white spots are from glare or camera flash.
