This is a very nice hair brooch. It's in a black metal brooch frame with the original "c" clasp and "t" hinge. The hairwork is in excellent condition with no floating pieces. This wonderful brooch is circa 1860, and measures 1 and 1/2 inches North to South, and 1 and 3/8 inches East to West. This is an opportunity to get a very nice piece of history at a bargain price.
