Here we have a wonderfully historic accessory that dates to the Victorian era. I believe it to be from about the time of the Civil War. It is a lovely molded floral piece that is most likely Gotta Percha or Vulcanite. These antique pins are such a fascination and look amazing affixed to a dress to cover a button.
Our very wearable estate brooch measures 2'' x 1-3/8''. It retains it's original hinged pin stick and C clasp. No damage to mention it has been very well preserved.
