I bought this brooch last year. I just love photo-related jewelry, lockets and so on. It touches my romantic soul.
The handsome fellow came with the brooch. He looks like he just got married or something.
I dont know what happened to the back of the brooch...Was there a hook or something so you could wear it as a pendant?
There is also a traditional c-clasp with the original hinged pin stem. It extends beyond the edge of the brooch which was right for that era 1860-1870
I really like it. The bad thing is I never wear brooches. So maybe I just have to get it restored/transformed to be wearable as a pendant.
Oh and I should look at those little markings on the back. Never thought of that before.
