McCoy Pottery Double Handled Ornate Fluted Vase 9" Aqua
Hair work brooch. Victorians loved jewelery made from hair. It was a HUGE industry and it was not only for mourning. Worth reading about the interesting history of hairwork if you're intrigued by it. When you come across these multi-color hair pieces as often as not, they're simply mementos (without the mori). A mother may have the hair of each of her children woven into a flower, or braided into a necklace chain; Much as you might wear a photo charm of your children today.
