An antique carved circular brooch with elephant detail.
We are unsure whether the brooch is made of ivory or not, but think that it possibly is. If so, it most definitely pre-dates CITES legislation. The brooch has a C clasp to the back.
There is no spring to the pin, but we do not believe that there ever was. The brooch has been cleaned but might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning.
There are a few small cracks to the composition of the brooch but the brooch itself appears stable. We suspect that these small cracks were made at the time of carving, given their position.
The brooch measures just under 2in in diameter. Believed to date from the earlier part of last century, or late nineteenth century.
