Victorian Whitby Jet Mourning Hands BroochVictorian Whitby Jet Mourning Hands BroochVictorian Whitby Jet Mourning Hands BroochVictorian Whitby Jet Mourning Hands BroochVictorian Whitby Jet Mourning Hands Brooch

This is an elegant antique Victorian era mourning Whitby jet brooch depicting a pair of crossed hands. The hands are beautifully carved and realistically formed. The back has an old fashioned T hinged pin stem and C clasp. This brooch was probably the center piece of a bracelet originally, and refitted to be worn as a brooch. There are still holes drilled int he ends and center back that would have accommodated the bracelet's stringing cord.

The brooch measures 3" x 1.675" and is .5" thick. It weighs 27.7 gr.

Condition: 2 middle finger tips are chipped, 1 on each hand.

I have never seen a similar Whitby jet carving before. I love the graceful way the hands are crossed over each other.
