This is a wonderful antique Mizpah brooch made from Whitby Jet in the late Victorian time of the 1890’s.
Whitby Jet is such a wonderful material coming from fossilised plant material that when polished such as this piece takes on a wonderful “jet black” appearance and was very popular in the late 1800’s to be used in jewellery.
Here this Whitby jet brooch has both the word Mizpah and its meaning.
Mizpah jewellery is so wonderful and reminiscent of a time gone by and this Whitby jet Mizpah brooch is really special.
Measuring 4cm across by 2.7cm high, this antique Mizpah brooch is so wonderful and special.
