A late Victorian era boar's tusk brooch, whose ends are capped in 14k gold. This tusk is sizable and beautifully curved— the fine polish gives the natural material a smooth, glowing finish. This brooch's capped ends are very well-constructed, and the scalloped design of the point cap is especially pretty. This is likely Scottish. Closure is a locking c-clasp.
