Antique Victorian Gutta Percha 2.20inches Brooch Pin Pansy Rose Narcissi High Relief Black Mourning
This precious period piece is of gutta-percha. It features flowers with a pansy, two narcissi, and one cabbage rose (possibly a peony). This is app. 2.20inches x 1.5inches x .50inches. This is very good overall with a little normal wear with age but no broken areas. The c-clasp back does have an uneven surface near the clasp as shown. I do not know if done in the making or if someone did something to the piece. Also, the c portion looks to be set into the back while the other end is glued on top of the back. It works the way it is, but may not be the original.
