Antique 19th Century Gold Filled Mourning Pendant with Braided Woven Hair

$695

About

A fine late Georgian or early Victorian memorial gold-filled pendant with woven hair. With a coil of braided hair set behind glass in a filigree-worked gold-filled pendant setting. A rare form indeed! In the Georgian and Victorian eras, woven hair art was used to memorialize a departed loved one or given as a keepsake memorial for a loved one in their absence. This pendant was worn above the heart and was clearly meant to keep someone dear in an intimate proximity. Diameter: ca. 22 mm Items purchased from this dealer must delight you. Purchases may be returned for any reason for a period of 7 days.
