VICTORIAN Whitby jet Gypsy boy set, brooch & earrings c 1870 : $598.00VICTORIAN Whitby jet and green hand painted Gypsy boy set of a brooch and earrings, circa 1870 and hand painted.
There's an open loops border around both the brooch and the earrings, amazingly delicate work, especially with the hand-crafted tools they used back then. Light surface crazing on the back of the earring is in the jet itself, but it is stable.
The brooch is 2-1/3" by 2", the earrings without the loops are 1-1/3", and the total length 2-1/4".
Also shown just for fun is a jpg of a vintage photo with a lady wearing a similar set HERE. The set is just wonderful, and all the pieces have lovely carving and well painted portraits.
These Gypsy boy paintings often came from Germany and were shipped to England to be set in jet. View View View
