Cannot find a post of the original piece. This is described on blogs as a romantic frame with a lock of blond hair BY William Morris, but those are his birth and death dates, so I think this is a mourning brooch with his hair done in his style. The question would be, did he design this prior to his death, to be executed with his date of death, or was it made in tribute by one of his students?
