Antique Victorian Pink Carved Shell Grape Leaf Brooch

This is a lovely antique Victorian period pink carved shell grape leaf brooch. I believe that it is carved from pink conch shell, and utilizes the natural curve of the shell to help give form to the curve of the leaf. The color is a delicate pale pink that shades to white on the back. The brooch has an old fashioned T hinge and simple C clasp. This could also be worn as a pendant by the simple addition of a bail loop through the open carved stem portion.

This brooch measures 2.125" from stem to leaf tip and 2.25 inch across.

Condition: I think there may be a thin sliver off the end of the center of the leaf missing as the serrated edge of the leaf is straight from the tip along .5" of the side, but because it still conforms to the shape of the leaf this is not immediately evident. Also on the back it appears that whoever made this piece changed their mind about placement of the clasp and there are a couple of extra drilled holes for holding the pin stem and clasp.

Looking for something feminine to wear to your next wine tasting event? How about this lovely pale pink grape leaf brooch.
