Bakelite Victorian Revival Mourning Motif Carved Brooch

Dating to the 1930s, this Bakelite brooch has a motif traditionally carved in jet during the late 1800s. It depicts an oak sprig with an acorn and an empty acorn cup signifying the loss of a loved one. It may have been worn for mourning, but was more than likely just a decorative revival piece since the practice of formal mourning had long passed for most ladies by the '30s. Fastens with a safety clasp. Measures 2 3/4" wide. Condition is excellent with no chips or cracks.
