Hand Carved Victorian Whitby Jet Brooch

£135.00
#5113

Circa 1870's, this sweet antique brooch would likely have been bought as a souvenir when visiting the English seaside town of Whitby. Famous for this local Jet which was found in seams along the coast, many workshops existed at the time dedicated to hand carving this most wonderfully glossy mineral into jewels. This pretty example features Ferns to the outer edges and flowers across the central twisted section. 

Measuring just an inch and a half, it fastens with the original 'C' clasp.
