The center has a wonderful oval of plaited hair under a bevel edge crystal.
The gold between the oval and curl border is enameled in black. It closes with the old C clasp, the tube style pin stem is hinged.
A soldered ring is attached to a loop on the back so it can be worn on a chain or ribbon.
It measures 2&3/8" by 2". The back is domed, the top also has a subtle dome.
Excellent condition, no damage and the slightest of wear.
Unmarked it was tested with acid to determine karat. A fabulous example of a Victorian mourning brooch.
