How rare to find a Victorian set! Often times sets were broken up for an estate. Here we have a Whitby jet brooch and earring set. The brooch is 1 3/4 inches long by 1 1/8 inches wide. It has a beautifully done conch shell cameo of a classical lady with elaborate hair, flowers and headdress. The back has a brass encased glazed compartment that is cloth lined. The earrings are screw backs and the metal is silver that was once lacquered in black. Most of the lacquer is gone. The earrings are 2 3/8 inches long and 3/4 in wide. Condition is good. C. 1880 and English.
