This brooch from around the time of 1840 shows the fine hairwork housed inside, the other obvious feature is its bold black enamel work and the inscription of 'In Memory of IA'.
The characteristic for its time use of the font in this piece and the Gothic typography. It is a jewel very fashionable for its time, a time when the Gothic Revival period had harkened a change back to traditional ways. This was the formal style of mourning for a burgeoning empire and a standardised design that focused on the principle of mourning(without any excess in flourishes) and stated the fact quite clearly.
There is a locket at the back with a clear glass for hair of the beloved person.
