Presented here is a Civil War era woman’s dress accessory in the form of a broach made of braided human hair. Hair jewelry and hair decorations were very popular at the time and were usually made from the hair of family loved ones and presented as a lasting sign of remembrance and love. Long, human hair strands were intricately and tightly braided together to form thick strings that in turn were handcrafted into special jewelry forms. This beautiful braided and intricately woven broach measures approximately 1½” long and has a 1” diameter. Broach has a brass frame that supports a small brass clasp and a brass locking arrangement. Pin does not hold closed very securely, may need minor repair if it is to be worn. Small pinecone-like drop from center of upper edge. Women wore this accessory for special occasions attached to their garment. This specimen is a wonderful example of hair jewelry and would make an ideal addition to any collection.
