Scenic Victorian Vulcanite Mourning Brooch of Boy Fishing
This is an exceptionally detailed Victorian period black mourning brooch of Vulcanite, showing a rustic scene of a boy fishing. The brooch is made in 2 layers. The base is a flat oval with crenelated edges and open center. This is overlaid with the scene done in high relief. The scene has 3 trees in the background, a body of water in the middle, and a boy kneeling on the bank and holding a fishing pole in the foreground. He has just pulled a fish from the water. The back has a typical old fashioned T hinge and C clasp. There are no markings.
This brooch measures 1.875" x 1.5" and is up to .375" thick.
Condition is good.
The scene shown in this brooch is not typical for mourning jewelry. Usually flowers, birds, hands, or a pretty lady are the subjects. The scene is also much more detailed than usual. It is an excellent example of this type of antique jewelry, and a fine addition to a collection or to be worn.
Offers considered, except on Red Tag sale items and on items with final reductions.
