Have had this brooch for years, bought at an antique fair in Hobart. Perhaps made from pinchbeck, with the original piece of woven fabric in the glass locket back. The picture part of the brooch measures about one inch accross
I thought I would have a lot of trouble getting a decent picture of the man in this, but I think he is pretty clear. I deliberately took the second picture as this is how he looks in the cabinet most of the time, and gave me the creeps for quite some time. He is still pretty interesting I think!! I have always thought of this man as being American for some reason, probably isn't lol!
I hope I am right in calling the picture a Daguerreotype....dating it 1839-49. If not, I would be very happy to be corrected!!
Hope you enjoy seeing this brooch. Thanks, Judy
