Antique BLACK Mourning WATCH Hair chain CROSS
This is an early Victorian mourning watch chain ( actually woven hair) and cross fob with Bessie engraved on it. The top I think is either jet or gutta percha and it has spool ends. The cross is gold filled and the metal piece on the ribbon is rose gold filled. The length including the end piece is 9" from end to end and the hair is doubled so it measures 16" long total.. It is in great shape and really well made.
