VICTORIAN antique Whitby jet brooch with a painted porcelain miniature
These plaques were made in Austria and sent to Whitby, England, to be mounted in jet for jewelry.
They are a young Tyrolean boy, but are also called the "gypsy boy" or "green boy".
For a similar piece see page 32 in Helen Muller's wonderful book "Jet Jewellery and Ornaments". View
