THE DARK LADY: ( Victorian Vulcanite Cameo Brooch ): This lovely deep brown Vulcanite Cameo Brooch was created in the middle years of Victoriaís reign, about 1870 - 1890, probably as an ornament suitable for wear during a period of mourning. It was originally black, but over time has changed to the rich dark brown it is today. The oval base plaque is slightly darker than it appears in the photo. I like to think that the lovely Elizabethan lady it depicts is something of a tribute to both of the great, long-lived queens of Englandís history. This molded cameo is affixed to the oval base by four tiny rivets and the brooch retains its original C clasp and extended pin stem. Condition: Very good. It has been gently worn and well cared for. Size: 2 1/4" high, 1 3/4" wide.
