This brooch is from the late 1700s or early 1800s. It is a cameo of a woman at the grave of someone she dearly loves, and is framed with delicately woven hair of the person that had passed away. Weaving hair as a keepsake was a very popular handycraft back in the day, and a lot of lovely examples still remain.
