Victorian Mourning Brooch, With Portrait And Hair Insert, 1866-1905,interesting:
This Victorian brooch is a mourning brooch, to remember that special person who has passed, with portrait and hair snip inserts. This gentleman apparently was born in 1866 and died in 1905. The brooch measures only 1 X .75 inch. As stated above, it seems like the brooch closure should have been on the opposite side, and the pin stem seems too long for the size of brooch. I am sure this could be corrected fairly easily.
A very interesting and unique item from Victorian/Edwardian times.
