VictorianBlonde Hairwork Bow Brooch


This intricately worked brooch is made from blonde human hair. Whether it was intended as a mourning or a friendship token isn't clear - there's no inscription, although there's a blank space in the banner at the front where that information might have been engraved. A tiny bit of hair is coming unwoven at the top of the bow but it's not really visible from the front. Gold fill findings.

This product is final sale.
