Metal is “pinchbeck” which is a form of brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, mixed in proportions so that it closely resembles gold in appearance the idea being that ordinary people could buy gold ‘effect’ jewelry when gold was only sold in 18 carats which pushed the price way over what people could afford to pay.
Invented in the 18th century by Christopher Pinchbeck, a London clockmaker, pinchbeck was used in “public” areas where theft was common (hence using it in watch fobs, a common pickpocket item).
