A rare Victorian ladies necklace, made from plaited human hair.

Typically such hair pieces were made in the form of watch chains, making this piece rather more unusual. A lady would have worn it in memory of a lost loved one, carrying their hair close to her heart.

The hair is dark brown in colour and is very neatly woven, with 5 engine turned gold coloured metal finials. Fastens with a gold coloured push in tube catch (either gold or rolled gold).

Measures 21" in length.

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

Great piece to either wear or display.
