Here we have a beautiful, Victorian, Large, Hand Carved, Whitby Jet Portrait
Brooch. The portrait is in the Classical style and depicts a woman who is
wearing a headdress and has long hair. The brooch is a substantial piece and
weighs 22.59 grams. There are no chips or cracks to the front of the brooch,
just some slight cracking where the brass plate has been glued on. There are
two sets of two holes on either side of the brooch indicating that it was once
worn as a pendant or the frontispiece of a choker necklace, possible on velvet.
