Antique Victorian Brooch mourning black jet lamode button pin
This brooch has a glass top that looks like black marcasites and is complimented with the fancy gold filled ribbon work. Queen Victoria started a fashion in 1861 by wearing black jet buttons to mourn the death of her husband Albert. Since jet was such a rare and expensive mineral, black glass came to be substituted by the rest of the population for their mourning attire. The brooch measures 1 1/3" wide and it is in great condition.
