This is a very nice hair brooch which I have taken out of my own collection. It was among the first I purchased and I have enjoyed it for many years, but now have more than I can wear. This one is interesting because the hair around the glass locket is blonde, but the hair inside the locket is dark. This is probably the hair of a married or engaged couple. The fittings on the side are gold, though I'm not sure of the weight, but they allow one to put the brooch on while holding the fitting so as not to damage the hairwork. This piece still has the original "c" clasp, and "t" hinge. This brooch dates to about 1860, and is in very good condition for its age. There is a place, left top, where the hairwork has a hole, but it is small and not very noticeable. The hair is secure. This brooch measures 1 and 1/4 inches North to South, and 1 and 1/8 inch East to West. The back of the piece is also gold.
