Vintage Brooch, Black Mourning Cameo Brooch, Bakelite Woman with Headdress, early 1900s
Truly Vintage Mourning Brooch, Edwardian to Art Deco period. Black Cameo made from black bakelite, tiered brooch with grooved corners and a stamped floral design on each side of the cameo. The brooch is is about 2.5" by 2.75". It is in very good condition. Came from an estate in PA where I was able to acquire many pieces from back in the late 1800's and early 1900's - I will be adding more of this. There is a line from the back of her head toward the corner - it is not a real crack but a craze line on the surface. IN the photos it is under magnification. It is visible without magnification but nothing like damage - just an age blemish. See photos.
(Lot Loc. No.: Win.10.25.15.1X1)
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
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.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
