an incredible vulcanite or gutta mourning brooch with a raised or repousse Lily of the Valley design...this is circa late 1800s and was worn during a time of mourning or grieving for a loved one that had passed...many mourning pieces were made from horn or gutta percha when Whitby Jet became scarce or was too costly for some...

incredible detailing...no cracks or visible chips...just a bit of the back edge has been chipped, not visible from the side or front...a strong 'C' clasp closure holds the pin shut...

this beauty measures roughly 1 1/2 inches in length...

this will be gift boxed and sent first class insured

thanks for taking a peek...please check out the other finds in the shop:
