Wait until you see this marvelous Victorian piece! This is a carved horn Cicada brooch, set with a lovely Orange Agate cabochon stone in the center and mounted in a prong setting. This piece is artist signed on the back and reads; GIP - for GEORGE I. PIERRE c 1890'S. A piece very similar to this is shown on pg. 158 in the 6th Edition of Answers to Questions about OLD JEWELRY Covering Years 1840 to 1950.
The brooch measures 3.25" wide x 1" high x 5/16" deep and weighs 5.3 grams. It is in superb condition, the pin is still nice and straight with a simple "U" style hook for the clasp. This is a piece from a private collection from a West Virgina estate sale. It is as lovely today as it was in the Victorian era when it was new. What a wonderful acquisition to add to your Victorian collection!
