A superb Victorian hand carved ivory brooch, large in size and in very good condition. A basket of flowers, it is remarkably well preserved. It is possibly a Dieppe, France origin, we are unsure on this one. It is shown in a period brooch case but it will not close over this carved brooch and is not original to it, so will not come with it. Just shown to give you an idea of how it would have been.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. Lots of photos from all angles so you can see if there are any tiny imperfections of it's 170 years, give or take. Full measurements also noted on photos.
IMPORTANT NOTE regarding antique tortoise shell or ivory: We are great supporters of protection for endangered species in our modern world. We never buy or sell anything 100 years or newer; we donate to anti-poaching organizations; we don't hunt; we conserve in ways that impact global warming (we're totally solar at home), knowing those measures also protect the animals in the wild today. We also recognize the vast cultural history we preserve with our care and reverence for these antique objects, and agree with CITES that objects over 100 years of age have nothing whatsoever to do with species depletion in our current world.
Our offering exceeds the age limitation of "more than 100 years of age", and is well within the exemption for CITES regulation. If imported, met the CITES regulation. This item will be handled and shipped from our Utah business, and is not available for shipment internationally, nor within the USA to California, NY, Nevada, Hawaii, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington if it contains ivory, sorry. Please see our small print for more details.
