Victorian Gold Gutta Percha Brooch Mourning Jewelry
This superb antique Victorian gutta percha brooch pin with a band of 14K gold and beads across the center comes from the middle of the 19th century. The 6mm thick long bar brooch has a beveled edge with three gold dots holding the thin gold wire. A brass c-clasp and tubular hinge close the piece. Measuring 2 1/2 inches long, the brooch is as wearable today as it was well over century ago!
