Victorian Bog Oak Mourning Brooch
This is a wonderful old example of Victorian mourning jewelry - a trend made popular after Queen Victoria lost her husband. This one depicts a gloved hand holding a wreath. It is about 2 1/4" wide by 1" from top to bottom. It has an trombone type closure. It looks as though that pin has been soldered onto another piece of metal, and if so, it was done a long time ago. I believe the pin is made of bog oak. It is in good condition with no marks and no problems.
