Antique Hand Painted Enamel Deer Jet Black Onyx Glass Mourning Remembrance Brooch or pin is beautifully painted. Pins like this were worn in memory of a loved one that had passed on to heaven, on a neckline, or a scarf or lace shawl. The glass fits well in the metal frame, the deer is very sweet and painted with white enamel. This is a beautiful brooch for your collection, I'm not sure if the safety latch was added later. Due to the large size, this was most likely meant to be worn to gather a long lace jabot type collar over a dress.
