Book-piece
The fish bowl brooch is the exact one photographed and appears in the book - Bakelite: The Art of the Carver, Tortoriello/Lyons, Schiffer 2008 on page 80 where this same pin was photographed.

Rare antique vauxhall glass brooch

Item: Vin647
Description:
Rare Antique Victorian Mourning Vauxhall Glass Brooch.
Vauxhall glass was produced in the UK in the early 1800's and is very rare to find today. Period: Circ 1800s. Hand made early craftsmanship at it's best, the brooch has brass stampings with beveled and mirrored red glass fern leafs and really catches the light. Size: approx 3.5 inches long X 1.5 inches wide. Condition: This is a very old pre-owned piece of rare jewellery, considering age the brooch is in pretty good condition. A nice find for a collector of antique jewellery.

Victorian Mourning Jewellery
This beautiful example is made from highly reflective Vauxhall Mirror Glass. In the language of flowers and mourning the fern leaf had a number of special meanings. Sorrow, Victory (of the soul over the mortal body) and Resurrection. They were most often worn as a symbol of lost love and perhaps it was worn as a remembrance of a lost love by a loving wife who had lost her husband.
