Victorian Mourning Brooch Original

Original mid-Victorian era polished black agate collar brooch, set in 12k gold (tested), with back hook for adding a pendant or watch chain. Perfect for Civil War era.

The death of Prince Albert in England, and the over 500,000 deaths of soldiers in the American Civil War elevated mourning to an art form in both the United States and Europe and mourning jewelry was an integral part of the dress of the mourner.

Brooch measures 1 1/2" wide by 1" high, and has a period correct tube hinge and c-clasp for closure, and pin back extending beyond the brooch as is consistent with the mid-Victorian period.
