Mourning Jewelry: MJ140

GOLDEN CAGES ( Victorian Antique Mourning Jewelry Hair Pin / Brooch ): This interesting and unusual brooch (c 1860-80) consists of four oval globes of table-worked brunette hair, each enclosed in a cage of spiral gold bands (14KT) with gold caps at each end. Three small gold orbs hang from the bottom hair globe. The gold cages do a pretty good job of protecting the hair globes so you can safely wear this brooch. There is a the original C clasp closure on the back. It is rare to find this style of brooch with all three golden drops intact. A perfect object of conversation at your next luncheon or dinner.

Condition: Very good. Small frayed area along top of globe on the left.
Size: 1 3/4” wide, 1 3/8” high, 1/2” deep.
