Victorian Hand Painted Whitby Jet Set - Circa 1880 - Pin & Earrings! Unique to find 3 pieces still together! Very nice condition. The painting on the porcelain disks is beautifully done. The pin has a minor old repair of a paper thin split to the top frame of the pin. Whitby jet has this tendency. I had to look under magnification to find this nuance. Looks like it was filled a long time ago, and well done. The paintings on the country boy look alike. The tops of the earrings (wires) are 14kt and were probably changed from more of a French wire most likely --- but this is the way they came to me. There are no chips. However at the top of the BACK of the pin -- there is a small rough area but not a chip--but part of the original jet. The back is brass looking. The "C" clasp in great working order, and pin is of course extra long as usual. This is a lovely set that shouldn't be split up! Beautiful !
