This Georgian gold cased mourning hair brooch pin is so tiny, just precious. It can also be converted to a ring or a charm necklace! The pin is very straight, it is functioning very well.
The hair seems to be original as the braids look to be untouched after 100 years. The frame is hand etched with floral designs. It is gold cased which is much thicker than rolled gold pieces. Gold casing was handmade not machine pressed like rolled gold. Besides the normal wear, there are surface scratches on the glass and the gold cased metal. There is a minuscule ding on the back and some visible scratches but this does not spoil the integrity or the beauty of this precious brooch.
There are no damages or repairs, the overall condition is impressive. There are patina and has not been professionally cleaned. I leave this up to the new owner. I have only gently wiped with soft jewelry cleaning cloth.
Size Approximately: 0.55" (w) x 0.35" (h).
Weight Approximately: 1.7 grams.
This brooch will arrive carefully presented in a gift box.
