This romantic Victorian brooch features a sweet example of palette work, a method of working locks of human hair into incredibly delicate and detailed images that are usually highly personal and symbolic. A bouquet of spring blossoms are picked out in blonde hair and sealed under glass. The 14k gold frame looks forward to Aesthetic Movement design. The back of the brooch is engraved "EJG Born 11th Nov 1853," further engraving has been scratched out underneath. What a beautiful and personal piece of jewelry history.
Details.....The brooch measures 0.79" by 0.99". In Very Good Condition for its age. You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique jewels, we consider it part of the charm.
