      Never saw brooch like this one! Is there liquid in the tube, as in floating opals pendants?
      Your grandmother had so much interesting pieces :-)
      I love family heirloom like those still remain in the family!!!

      yes I believe so but over time (100 years) it dries and the black oil like substance is what is left

      Another interesting and charming thing about these brooches is a man would give this brooch to his bride to be and she would wear this on a lace collar :)

      All the women in my family never threw any thing out! And I am fortunate that my mother and grandmother did enjoy fashion and jewellery:))
