CLASSICAL EBONITE BEAUTY ( Victorian Jewelry Cameo Pendant ): This pretty Victorian Vulcanite Cameo Pendant portrays a classical Greek maiden. (c. 1860-75) Frequently used for Antique Mourning Jewelry, vulcanized (hardened) rubber was also known as Ebonite. Formed by two separate pieces, the oval cameo backing shows two tiny screws where the female profile has been attached to the plaque. The original pendant ring is still in place. Light in weight, this back beauty would look wonderful on a ribbon or chain. Striking and serene basic black is always in fashion. Condition: Excellent. A few light scratches on the back of the plaque. No chips. Size: 2 1/8 high, 1 3/4 wide, 1/2 deep.
