This example of hairwork is a classic. The front shows the unique weaving of shining brown hair. The back is a basket weave design utilizing light brown hair; both sides are in excellent condition – obviously made by someone with great skill. The frame is 9 K.
It measures 1½ inches in width and is 1 inch top to bottom. Its depth is ¼ inch. The “T” pin and the “C” clasp are original. The tip of the pin has been broken off, but could be sharpened by a jeweler. It does not keep the brooch from closing properly.
