Antique Victorian Carved Pressed Horn/Vulcanite Faux Whitby Jet Hand Mourning Brooch Pin. Gothic. PRESENT GIFT
Victorian 1837 – 1901
A Wonderful Reminder of Times Gone By – Very Gothic!
A beautiful antique Victorian pressed horn, or vulcanite mourning brooch, of a hand holding flowers. In lovely antique condition. The only thing worth mentioning is that the fastener on the reverse does not appear to be the original, but a very old replacement. It is attached with screws and is stamped ‘Made in Gt. Britain’.
These types of brooches became very popular after Prince Albert’s death in 1861. During this period, black jewellery was the height of fashion, and not just for those in mourning.
Measures approximately: 1.75″ length or 40mm
In Very Good Antique Condition
