This beautiful vintage or antique brooch is made of carved gutta percha in the late 1800’s. Gutta Percha is a rubber-like gum made of the resin derived from trees in Southeast Asia, mainly Malaysia. This brooch is a castle with a leaf border. On the back of the brooch is marked Mallahide which I can only assume is the person that carved it. The brooch measures 2-1/2” x 2-1/4” and is in awesome condition.
