Galvanic brooch of black vulcanite, with cherub ho

1890-1910 in London

Galvanic brooch of black vulcanite, with cherub holding fistfuls of lightning on one side and on the reverse, inset copper plate with eight electric bolts radiating from a central object (fist? lightbulb?). Two holes drilled in the copper plate, probably for mounting. Similar but not identical to A106003, A124306, and A602783 -- cherub is fatter and less detailed, so this is probably a knockoff of one made by Pall Mall Electric Association. Probably London, English, 1890-1910
