Regular price $58.00 Sale

Beautiful 1870s Victorian mourning pin featuring the braided lock and initials of a lost loved one. Pin above your heart as a memento mori. C-clasp closure at back.

MEASUREMENTS:
(taken with item lying flat)
→height: 1.25 inches
→width: 0.75 inches

CONDITION: Good antique condition. There's general wear throughout this piece, including to the gold wash covering the base metal, visible glue (?) or possibly burned-off end on the front of the hair braid, bending to the pin of the clasp and a punched-out section on the backing. All in all, an affordable piece of Victorian hair jewelry that presents quite well, but is not without flaws. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.

COLOR: Gold casing with dark brown hair

MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears to be made of a silver base metal with a gold wash.

PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments (not your body measurements; clothing should allow room for movement) that fits you well. Please be aware all monitors display colors differently. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
