Antique ca. 1860s Victorian gold plated hair work brooch

A mid-Victorian mourning brooch with a hair work compartment and a decorative Baroque-style frame. The rectangular pin is beautifully modeled and thickly plated in yellow gold. The scroll and leaf details around the border are thick and nicely articulated. A fitted frame of glass holds a little lock of brown hair at the center of the pin. Tube hinge and "c" clasp. I suspect this was a sentimental piece worn for a living loved one at the time.
