A superb & rare mid Victorian Whitby Jet mourning brooch, c1860.

​Large in size; completely hand carved by a 19th century jet worker; made to mourn the loss of a mother. 

​I have seen many jet bar brooches with 'mother' on, in years of collecting, but never a brooch of this size and quality.

I bought this piece in Whitby itself and was told it came from an old local family who had owned it for a great many years...inherited  from a great grandmother.  It may well have been a commission piece at the time but I cannot confirm this.

Base metal oval pin plate with period brooch fittings to back, may be an antique replacement. 

Measurements: 2" by 1 5/8".

Weight: 14.91gms.

In good antique condition: as shown in photos.

A perfect brooch for antique Whitby Jet collectors or a wonderful memorial piece for someone. It would be difficult to find a similar example.
