Dating to the mid to late Victorian era is this charming mourning brooch in the shape of a woman's hand.

A true black with a slight sheen..it is not tested but I am advised it is probably gutta percha or Vulcanite or even possibly Bog Oak. Further research leads me to think it is Vulcanite.

The hand is delicately carved and as is traditional with mourning pieces is a left hand with a wedding ring. Someone's Mother or wife.

The hand holds a beautiful full blown (indicating the person was mature) peony rose..the Victorian symbol of love..and is further enhanced by a pretty detailed embroidered cuff.

The Brooch measures 1 3/4" x 3/4".

With a smooth back and the original C clasp it is in good Antique condition.
