    Antique woven Hair Bow Brooch, circa 1830

    Jewellery containing hair was popular in the 17/18th century and revived in the 19th century. The fashion for hair jewellery was such that items were often given as a sentimental token, not necessarily for mourning a loved one. This Intricately woven bow brooch is in fact two bows and the tassels are joined with a lovers knot, further emphasising the closeness of the bond between giver and recipient. The workmanship in this piece is absolutely stunning and it is in excellent order. I believe the mark on the reverse is Dutch.
