1800's Victorian Gutta Percha Mourning Cameo Brooch, Brown, Gold Tone Scalloped Frame
1800's Antique Mourning Brooch, mid to late 1800's, brown gutta percha, raised cameo style with a woman set on a gold tone scalloped frame, prong-set with old style safety pin style pinback. It is It is 2.25" tall and 2" wide - oval. There is some typical wear on the pinback with a small dent on one of the scalloped edges but given it's edge it is in very good condition. The milk chocolate covered gutta percha cameo is in very good condition - no cracks, dings, chips, or other damage. There is typical vintage patina on the pinback but otherwise it is in very good condition which is amazing considering it is like to be 150 years old plus. On vintage pieces I do brush dust and dirt off but I do not use cleaners as many vintage buyers prefer the piece to be as is.

I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
