THISTLE BLOSSOMS IN JET ( Victorian Jewelry Jet Brooch ): Simply stunning is the only way to describe this outstanding Victorian Whitby Jet Brooch. (c. 1850) Hand carved from the very finest jet Whitby this figural brooch of thistle blossoms and leaves is a rare find. Most of the jet pieces were geometric in shape or token seaside holiday souvenirs. Victorian fashion was predominantly class-led, with Queen Victoria, herself, encouraging the growth of both the jet industry and Scottish inspired themes. This is a huge, elegant example of the allure of Jet black, flashing and alive. There is a C clasp on the back. Condition: Excellent. Size: 3 1/2 high, 1 3/4 wide, 3/8 deep.
