Beautiful Victorian Carved Pressed Horn Faux Whitby Jet Large Size Grape Vine Mourning Brooch Pin. Excellent Antique Condition. Gothic. PRESENT GIFT
Victorian 1837 – 1901
A Wonderful Reminder of Times Gone By – Very Gothic!
The Brooch will come in a Little Ribbon Tied Box, and would make a GORGEOUS GIFT!
A beautiful antique Victorian pressed horn mourning brooch, of wonderful vine leaves and grapes, with fine detail. The brooch has been tested as horn. It is a lovely large size. It is in excellent condition for 150 or more years old. It fastens with a Victorian tube hinge and simple C clasp on the reverse.
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.
I have given you a couple of ideas how you could wear the brooch, other than on a lapel (which looks fantastic) it also looks stunning on a velvet ribbon worn as a choker necklace, or on a hat (neither of which are included).
Measures approximately: 2″ x 1.5″ or 49mm x 37mm
A Simply Beautiful Piece
In Excellent Antique Condition
