I collected mourning hair pieces for a long time...
This locket sat in a drawer for years, I thought you would enjoy it :-)
It weights 52 grams!!!
Unmarked silver, gently worn on back enamel.
Height with bale: 2.1/2"
The two compartments hold a wonderful monogram in hair, dated 30 Octobre 1884, and a nice plaited brown hair panel.
Celiene pointed out there must be something behind the hair work initials! I forgot about it... there is a hinge and another plaited hair panel on the other face :-)
Strange than the initials outside are différents from those inside...
Celiene advised it was the owners ones outside and the deceased's in hair work !
