Victorian Braided Hair in Oval 9K Gold Setting Mourning Brooch
Victorian, 1837 - 1903, braided hair in oval 9 karat gold (tested) and glass setting mourning brooch. The brooch measures 33 mm x 28 mm. During the mid-nineteenth century hair work became a popular drawing-room occupation, as fashionable as the much-practiced knitting, netting, and crocheting. Good condition!
