Item details

Two beautiful Victorian 19th century rare Whitby Jet beaded appliques that were used on an original Victorian dress.

The first is shaped like a flower or four leaf clover with a flower shape of sequins in the centre. The reverse has very neat hand stitching and an old safety pin. Size 2 3/8" x 2 3/8".

The second has four outer ovals with a line through each one and centre circles similar to a web with a central line through this. Smaller open loops are at the top and bottom with tiny shamrock shapes, two at the top and two underneath. The reverse has been neatly stitched.

Total size is 3 3/8" wide x 1 1/4". Whitby Jet is not the same as French jet, it is only found in the Whitby area of Yorkshire, England.

Display coins are not included.
