    Hello everyone.

    How cute is this!!!

    Edwardian 9ct rose gold mounted tooth brooch.
    It has a 1901 lever lock safety C clasp.
    The brooch is marked 9c for 9ct gold and is 2 inches long.
    The pin is marked Metal.

    Probably a sentimental piece......a baby's first tooth perhaps......

    I love it, hope you do too! Thanks Judy

      I'm a bit ambivalent here Judy - cute concept, beautifully executed, but I have never been big on keeping teeth. i know lots do! Maybe it was a deceased child and they wanted a beautiful memento.
      I always remember seeing on a collector's show once this huge castle built by a dentist in the 1940s or so out of teeth - creepy as hell.

      Judy, you win today's prize for the funkiest brooch posting! Where'd you find it?
    3. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      That's ok Karen thanks....I didn't expect everyone to be as keen on it as I am!!
      I prefer to think it is just the child's first tooth that the mother had made into a brooch as a keepsake......... It would be too sad otherwise......
      OMG ....that castle does sound very creepy!!!!

      Lol thanks Bonnie.....I had been watching this brooch for a couple of years at a market. As much as I wanted it I just couldn't justify paying what the seller wanted for it! Anyway, that seller left the market for good and next thing another seller had it and only wanted $45.00 for it. Considering it is something that would not come up very often I thought it was a very good price and snaffled it!!

      Very interesting find!
    6. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Thanks Martika, I think so too and not something seen very often!

      Woooh! A so nice keepsake of a child, no mourning here :-)

      I must post my framed first cut hair locks and baby teeth from two brothers!

      The dentist's teeth castle must be really creeeeepyyyy!
    8. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Thanks Pascale, glad you think as well it is just a keepsake and not mourning!
      Look forward to seeing your frame!
      I kept baby teeth and first locks from my daughter and son as well! Now that they are older (43 and 41) I have given them each their set......

      Judy - you are 100% right about something like that not coming up often. I'd say not at all!
