ETERNAL LOVE ( Antique Victorian Jewelry Hair Brooch / Pin ): This petite pin with three circular glass covered compartments of braided white hair from an elderly loved one. (c. 1850-70) My guess is that a younger relative had this pin made as a memento of an elder member of the family to serve as an eternal remembrance. The three hair compartments are framed by the coils of a 15KT gold snake – an age old symbol of eternity when the mouth holds the tail. This pin is unusual for both its white hair and its triple coiled snake setting. It has its original C clasp with a replacement pin stem on the back. The brooch is slightly bowed. It would draw appreciative attention when worn on your collar. Really a rare addition to your Mourning Jewelry collection!

Condition: Excellent.
Size: 1 3/8” wide, 1/2” high.
