Since I recently opened a new shop I have made the acquaintence of many people from my area I never had the pleasure to meet. Here is a family piece from a local Litchfield, CT family. It is an enamel mourning or memorial brooch with hair in the beveled glass space and enamel around in the shape of a clover leaf.
The brooch is 14 k gold acid tested for fineness as I did not see a hallmark. It is 1 1/2' in diameter and weighs 10.4 grams. It is in excellent estate condition except for the slight loss of enamel in a couple of places on the edges.
