Here is a beautiful Antique Victorian Sterling silver mourning pin brooch with locket hair chamber compartment on the back dating to the late 19th Century. It measures 1 ¾” wide by 1 ¼” high and is 5/8” thick oval shaped and weighs in a hefty 23 grams. It features a locket compartment back with removable frame for keepsakes such as hair or a picture of a loved one but this one has no hair in only a small piece of muslin and does not have hair inside. The center back compartment of the pin is glass with a small piece of tan muslin beneath. Traditionally, a lock of hair from a loved one would be placed here. Beautifully and artfully crafted the pin design is symmetrical with applied dimensional layered Victorian design pieces mounted from the center out to the edges. The pin is in excellent Antique condition with no dents or heavy scratches just some very light surface scratches visible under magnification but consistent with age and gentle use being mentioned to be accurate. This rare Victorian mourning pin would make a great addition to any woman’s jewelry collection.
