COMMENTS: Circa 1800's. Here is the most beautiful and amazing woven hair necklace we’ve ever seen. The center plaque and clasp combination are gold filled, elaborately decorated with highly-baroque repousse work. The engraving appears to read "JB" and the back says "souvenir." The truly amazing aspect of this rare and gorgeous piece is the 20" long necklace composed of intricately woven human hair! Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age. Items will be cleaned but natural patina will be preserved if applicable. Polishing to near new is always FREE upon request!
