A piece of branch coral is used as the stem of a grape vine in this brooch. The frame is a drawn gold tube.

Mourning Locket

This thick gold locket probably originally stored a painted portrait, or more likely, some braided or woven hair under a glass or crystal cover. The roman numerals may represent a date (February 5, 1820). The monogram enameled into the front of the locket shows that this was made for a particular person. There is no hallmark, suggesting that this is not English. Late Georgian era.
