A pressed horn brooch in the form of a gloved hand. These brooches usually depicted a hand clasping a wreath, a rose or ears of corn. This example is broken at the junction of the forefinger and thumb and whatever it was once clasping is now missing, c mid 19th century. The brooch is set with a metal pin on the back. This natural plastic item forms part of the Worshipful Company of Horners collection.
