This is a tiny jewel of a mourning brooch containing plaited hair encased behind glass set in a nine-carat yellow gold frame incised with leaves and flowers. We date it to the Georgian/early Victorian period.
It's in beautiful condition for such an old piece and feels nice and heavy in the hand for such a tiny object.
The back is engraved with a monogram, although the elaborate letters are slightly worn and hard to discern. Possibly SER.
The fixing is a C clasp which secures a base metal pin.
