This mourning pin is just great; I just wish I knew the providence behind it! It measures 2” by 1 ¾” and the pin stem sticks out from behind the brooch. The 3 curls with the pearls at the base are called “Prince of Wales” design. They seem to be sitting on a milk glass background, which was very popular in the 1860’s to 1880’s. The brooch has the “C” clasp and is done in gilded brass. It’s in very good condition for the age of the brooch. The beveled glass top has some scratches and cuts which are visible at close inspection, yet it’s a great example of mourning jewelry.
