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.
