True Vintage Angel and Child Cameo or Mourning Brooch Pendant Combination, 2.25", Early 1900's
Early 1900's Antique Mourning or Cameo Angel and Child Brooch and Pendant Combination. This is from the 1920-1940 Era in my opinion. It is a 2.25" tall and 1.75" wide carved floral framed angel and child or cherub brooch and pendant combination. The pinback is part of the base and not an attached style pin and the pin extends beyond the frame of the brooch. It has the look of a unique type of piece. The carved pieces is prong-set. I cannot tell what the material is, bone, glass, lava, ivory, or even a plastic. It is a tan color. I did not see any damage but it could use a correct cleaning by someone who does know how to clean it however it could be worn as is. This came from an estate sale in the Arizona area. I did not find another one like it. The pin back is a silver tone plate almost the entire size of the carved piece. It is sturdy and has nice old world appeal. The pin back does not have the C clasp but does extend beyond the end of the pin. This could be a frankenstein piece that was made up from old parts - just not sure but either way - it is appealing from an older standpoint. 1900's. Good condition. See photos.

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.
