A gorgeous Victorian carved and molded vulcanite brooch.

The back has an old C type clasp and pin.

A very nice example of Victorian vulcanite jewellery.

Vulcanite is a hardened rubber that is treated with chemicals and heat to give it its compact strength, it is often black and dark brown in colour and was used in the Victorian era as a substitute for jet.

Very good used condition overall, some light surface wear, commensurate with age.
