Carved Mani in Fede Mother of Pearl Handshake Estate Brooch - Friendship or Love

This gorgeous brooch is made of mother of pearl shell that was carved into a Mani in Fede handshake design. From the Latin or Italian phrase, Mani in Fede means hands in trust or faith and is symbolized by hands clasped in friendship, love or betrothal. The brooch measures about 1 1/2" by 3/4". It has a flat C type of clasp with no safety. My feeling is that this was most likely made during the Art Deco era, although it could be antique from the 1910s, or it could be vintage 1940s. Good condition with light age wear and a little bit of irregularity to the mother of pearl. You will love this!!!
