GOLDEN VINES AND HAIR PLUMES ( Victorian Mourning Jewelry Brooch ): This gorgeous Victorian Mourning Brooch encloses palette-worked curls and plumes of dark ash blonde hair. The brooch dates from 1850 - 1870. Adorned with gold wires on a milk glass base, the hair is covered by beveled glass. The graceful curved gold-filled setting has such a pleasing design. Framed by thick elaborate vines encircling the hair compartment, each compass point is accented by golden leaves and curled vine tendrils. This is an ornate and substantial piece of Victorian history. The oval brooch possesses its original C clasp and extended pin closure. Condition: Excellent. No movement to the hair and no wear to the setting. Size: Brooch 2 1/4" wide, 2" high. Hair oval 1 5/8" wide, 1 1/2" high.
