Tricia's Treasures

Manufacturer: UNKNOWN
This is an antique Victorian or Edwardian mother of pearl brooch. It has a tube hinge and a C clasp. It appears to be set in gold washed brass. The mother of pearl has a wonderful iridescence. The brooch measures 1-1/2 inches by 1-1/4 inches. I believe this might have been a mourning brooch because of its depth. There might have been a hair compartment on the back at one time. It is in good condition but one end is dented in on the back side. I believe this could easily be pushed out. Otherwise, it does have an age patina and may need polishing. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by.
