A fabulous pair, of large Victorian, woven human hair mourning earrings.

Most I have come across from the era have been much smaller than these; they are a real statement piece in wear.

The later hooks are stamped 925; the original mounts have not been tested and are silver coloured metal.

The mourning hair is a dark brown in colour, intricately woven, with circular silver metal base.

Measurements: 2.75" drop (from top of hooks), with an approx 0.7" width (some natural variation due to nature of material).

Some minor condition issues; one earring has a hole/small gap in hair just above base and both have some visible glue where circular mount has been applied & small number of stiffened stray hairs. Nothing to detract in wear and only visible under close scrutiny.

Please view all the photographs for clear detail of item on offer and its condition.

Great example for 19th century mourning jewellery collectors.
