HAIRWORK HOPE ( Victorian Mourning Jewelry Pin / Pendant ): Although we now associate anchors with ships, the Victorians used them as a symbol of hope and steadfastness. A popular set of charms including Faith (the cross), Hope (the anchor) and Charity (a heart). Early Christians under persecution used the anchor form as a disguised cross. This dainty charm is table-worked hair formed over a hard core. (c. 1850-80) The anchor accents and chain are 14KT gold and the fleur-de-lis watch pin it hangs from is gold-filled. You can remove the anchor and wear it on a chain if you prefer. The watch pin has a C clasp closure and a large hook that can be used for lockets or other small pendants. You can have your initials engraved on the cartouche at the center. These small charms are highly collectable. Condition: Excellent. Hair is tight and undamaged. Size: Charm alone 1 1/2 long, 7/8 wide. Watch pin and charm 2 1/2 long.
