Finely Carved Victorian Whitby Jet Brooch


This pretty hand carved brooch features a fabulously defined twisted section. Circa 1870's, this piece 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. 

Measures just over an inch and closes with the original 'C' clasp.
