Victorian Keepsake Hair Frame Bar Pin

Unavailable
This is a wonderful little bar brooch or pin with a center shield picture frame or a frame or a lock of hair. ( It would have to be a very small picture.)

The rococo work on the ends is exquisite. The are hallmarks on the back rim. I do not know much about identification of hallmarks but I do know that it is very old. It has a ā€œCā€ clasp. The pin bar may have been replace at some point since it is not the same metal. I don't know if this item is sterling or not. I could be that is is 800 silver or some other mix. I am not about the polish off the ancient patina which contributes to the charm of such an old piece.

It measures 1 13/16th long.

The condition is excellent other than having heavy patina.

You will find my selection not only interesting & fun to browse through but very affordable too.
