This two-colour gold, diamond and green guilloché enamel brooch with central crowned ER cipher had been a gift from Elizabeth in the 1930s.

Offered in the original red and gilt tooled leather case for the retailer Carrington & Co, Regent Street, with a further gilt embossed crowned ER cipher to the lid, it took £4600.
