    Here is my flea market find from yesterday. I bought this lot of 6 brooches and paid 12 EUR total, all of them marked or interesting - yay! I wish all my flea market days were like that!
    As for this piece, I would say victorian mourning molded glass cameo pin. I would say glass, since the material is cold to the touch and the pin is relatively heavy. The face is matte, rest of the front side is polished. The back side is rough.
    I would like to hear opinions of the experts here, since this is my first victorian cameo pin.
    Thank you in advance!

      I think antiquerose has something similar, made out of gutta percha!

      Gorgeous!
      If cold to the touch (feel it wit your lips!) and heavy, and the fact it is deep black, strong possibility it is glass!
      Gutta percha becomes brownish with age :-)
    13. lentilka11, 3 years ago
      Its cold, heavy and it is not brownish at all. Thank you, Kyra!
    14. valentino97 valentino97, 3 years ago
      Yes, glass not gutta percha - both are very nice. But oh I love your beautiful pin!
    15. antiquerose antiquerose, 3 years ago
      Not gutta percha? My piece is not brown looking at all. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/118221-gutta-percha-victorian-brooch-mourning

      Is it jet Black then ??
    16. lentilka11, 3 years ago
      Thank you valentino97!
      @antiquerose - love your piece

      Rose, check my comment on your post of your beautiful pin - yes, I believe yours is gutta percha. My comment was about this pin which is glass. I love your brooch and this one is wonderful too! Both are so unique and beautiful.
