Hand brooches deliver a message. In victorian times a hand holding a fan stood for flirtation. This brooch is made of some sort of early plastic. The brooch is very light weight, almost feels a bit like holding a larger macaroni :). The brooch is much more yellow in color than it shows in the photo.
This brooch was probably made at the end of the victorian era (1900-1901) based on the fast that it's probably casein.
