GREEK KEY CLASSIC ( Victorian Mourning Jewelry Brooch ): Black enamel delineates the Greek Key border of this elegant Victorian Mourning Brooch. Dating from 1870 to 1890, an exceptionally thick braided knot of brown hair rests under the celluloid covered compartment. A simple wire twist edge surrounds the hair and then the gold-filled bold Greek Key design completes the striking setting. This large neo-classic design is eye catching. The brooch bears its original C clasp and extended pin closure with a ring for a safety chain.

Condition: Excellent. Few spots of wear to enamel consistent with age. Please note: The white spots at each side are reflections, not defects.
Size: 2 1/4" wide, 1 7/8" high.
