A charming piece of Victorian sentimental mourning jewelery. This pressed horn mourning bracelet has a beautiful and quite intricate carved design. The bracelet has seven ornate beads with a star design in the centre, these beads are 1" high by ¾" wide. There are also seven diamond shaped faceted beads which are just under 1" high. As was customary, the bracelet is strung onto black elastic. When not extended the bracelet measures 9 1/4" in diameter. From the Middle or Grand Victorian era - dates from 1860-1880.

Dyed pressed horn was a popular natural synthetic that was used extensively during the Victorian era, and centered in Sheffield, England. Pressed horn jewelry was a popular affordable alternative to more expensive jet. There is some light crazing on the back of the panels, as is normally found with pressed horn.
