Antique Victorian Black Gutta Percha Dove with Florals Mourning Pin
Dating to the late 1800s may I offer, out of my personal collection, here's a mourning piece I was keeping for myself. Why? Well, because it's subject matter you just don't find anymore - a Mourning Dove standing upon a small garland of florals. The center piece is set upon an oval base which, itself, has an border of florals. Simple c-catch at the back to hold the pin in place. Condition is excellent! Pieces like this tended to suffer mishaps through the years but this one has no wear and no broken beak - yep, it's as sharp as the day it was cast!
Size: 1-15/16" x 1-5/8". Depth is about 3/4".
Final Comments: I sure won't find a pin like this anytime too soon. It's just a wonderful piece of mourning jewelry from the past!
