This is another beautiful hair brooch which I have taken from my own collection. It's in the shape of a lyre, and once again, one puts it on by touching the gold, and not the hairwork, and this piece, crafted of either 10 or 14 carat gold, is in excellent condition. It measures 1 inch North to South, and 7/8 of an inch East to West. The piece maintain its "c" clasp, and "t" hinge, and is circa 1860.
