First: I need your advice on this brooch, what type and era is this brooch?
Is it a mourning brooch or something else? It is surpricingly light, it only weighs 15 grams and the size is 5 cm x 4,5 cm. It seems to be one carved piece mounted on a base. It has a brass nedle and c-clasp. It somewhat feels like plastic and at the same time not, much lighter, can´t figure it out. Thanks for advice. Any ideas and thoughts are weolcome. Thanks!
Sorry I have´nt cleaned it yet, want to know what material it might be first.
Later: It seams to be gutta perka, and a mourning brooch.
