In an ornate gold-filled frame, this classic jet mourning cameo of a woman's bust in high relief turns to reveal a lock of hair on the opposite side. Measuring 2 1/2" x 2", this unusual piece has some edge wear on the side holding the hair--the edges of the frame are rough. Closing with a "C" clasp, the brooch is unmarked as to metal and maker and basically in very good condition. A special and unique memento of Victorian times.
