Here is a Victorian Mourning brooch. This has enamel and metal. This is as found and will come with the 1950's box it was found in. From the eighteenth century through the Victorian era it was fashionable to incorporate hair and portraiture into a brooch. This piece has the area where a loved one's hair would sit, it was found empty . This practice began as an expression of mourning, human hair was encased within the brooch or braided and woven into a band to which clasps were affixed. The centre portion of this brooch reads, In Memory Of. There is scroll trim missing as shown, slight enamel chipping, the centre part is loose. This would be worth some TLC and has been priced accordingly. It displays well in spite of the mentioned condition issues. This piece measures, 2 1/2" long by 2" wide.
