This is a large 1 & 3/4" by 1 & 1/2" mid-19th c. brooch of hand carved natural jet, the border embellished with hollowed out oval reserves, set with a lovely shell cameo. The detail of the came is excellent--the highest point of grapes and leaves is still beautifully defined although the scanner blocked out some of the detail. It is almost dome shaped as you can see in the side view. It is in very fine condition, both jet and shell.
