Antique Circa Early 1800's hair mourning brooch. Hair looks to be chestnut in color. The piece is Unmarked. Engraved initials on the back M.K.W.
Back of the piece is testing Karat gold with silver mix and some copper. Front is testing 14K gold. Either a very heavy gold fill (plate) or is 14K - I really don't know for certain and the only way for me to know for sure is to damage the piece. Not worth damaging to find out so consider the piece a gold filled with silver content.
As I do not know about the above actual metal makeup with certainty, this is sold as is, no return, as pictured .
Please do review all of the photographs as they are of the actual item you are buying.
Size: Just over 1 1/4" wide (not including the pin) and about a hair over 1" high.
Weight: Approx 7 grams all inclusive
Main Stone: None
Secondary Stone: None
Notable: Some tarnish. Unpolished. Shows wear. Engraved. Hair is a bit askew.
All of my gold and silver is authenticated before listing for sale. This piece has been xray analyzed using a Niton XRF Spectrometer to ensure the metal makeup meets industry standards for solid gold jewelry. Due to the nature of the piece, I elected NOT to damage the front for acid testing .
