Am interesting antique Victorian era Vulcanite cameo brooch.

It is a very well designed piece depicting a lady, possibly Mary.

The cameo has some lightening to the Vulcanite but no chips or cracks and is a nice unusual design.

Vulcanite was created in the early 19th century by Charles Goodyear and it was invented after blending a mix of sulphur and rubber, creating a hardened or vulcanised rubber known as Vulcanite.

It is usually a rich dark brown to black colour and this made it a popular alternative to Whitby Jet for mourning and other jewellery.

It is highly prized today and genuine pieces of Vulcanite jewellery are popular among collectors.

It is has an old c type clasp and pin fastener this is brass.

Unmarked, c1880s

Good used condition overall, some age commensurate wear and signs of use, some light surface wear, lightening to the Vulcanite.

Approx measurements:
1.90" width
1.50" height.
