This is an exquisite Victorian mourning brooch comprising a border made of brown table-worked hair, with four black and gold enamel bands attached to a central gold oval ring, gold initials in the center and a black and gold hanging heart locket. There are four gold bands clinching the square hair border, with the bands attached to a gold oval ring in the center of the hair border. The bands are decorated with black enamel. On two of the bands, there is a forget-me-not flower, and on each of the other two, there is a carnation. Forget-me-not flowers symbolize faithful love and memories while carnations symbolize pure love and innocence.

In the center of the oval gold ring are the initials 'TCL’, in gold with black enamel decoration. At the back of the brooch, there is a C-clasp and pin.

At the bottom of the hair brooch is a tiny hanging heart gold locket, with black enamel and a forget-me not flower on the front and back. The locket opens to reveal a glazed compartment on one side containing a braided lock of hair. It is such a gorgeous little locket and still complete.

The gold has been tested as 14kt. There is very slight damage to the top of the hair mount but otherwise the condition is very good. The brooch weighs 4.06 grams. It measures 1 inch across and 1 ¼ inches down.

The brooch will be presented in a new gift box. Postage and insurance are included in the price.
