VICTORIAN Whitby jet hand carved brooch and earrings with painted porcelain ovals of cherubs and flowers, a rare set with wonderful detailing.    #VHM3

 

For more information about JET and other Victorian black jewelry we recommend the excellent book 'Jet' by Helen Muller and "Whitby Jet" by Katy & Helen Muller.

with a small potted Monkey Puzzle tree in the foreground. Jet came from fossilized monkey puzzle trees.

 

VICTORIAN jet worker's tools as shown in Helen Muller's book "Jet". I was surprised to see how primitive some of the actual tools were, homemade and well used. The artistry in the best hand carved jet jewelry is amazing.

VICTORIAN jet pen and pencil set with matching hand carved designs and Whitby Abbey, 5" long. Sets are rare and this set is particularly lovely. The third piece is a red pencil with the name "Whitby" on the handle.   View   View   View   View   View   #V33165

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
