An Exceptional Early Hair Jewelry Cross

An Exceptional Early Hair Jewelry Cross

This wonderful little gold, glass and hair cross is one of the most carefully crafted pieces of hair jewelry we have handled and it is in absolutely perfect condition. There are six different plaited hair samples, each set behind a beveled glass panel. Close examination shows that each hair selection is different, but easily from the same family. The back shows six first names, all beautifully engraved in script; George, Edward, Richard, Cordelia, Sarah and Frederick. Unfortunately there is no last name given.
