This brooch is made of a very old and brittle plastic but the effect is that it looks like glass or jet. Especially when placed on a textured fabric. I reckon 1940s or earlier. It would have been a cheap and cheerful piece at the time.
It is a fun piece that will look gorgeous on your Laura Ashley ensemble or to hold up a cravat. Personally, I like to go monochromatic and would wear it on black. Then the texture pops.
Use a sponge to keep it from flopping on thinner garments although this would look spectacular pinned to a wool coat or jumper.
