I guess I’m more sentimental than I like to admit.  When I come across very personal little treasures like this photo button, I get completely pulled in.  Who was she?  What was her story? Who wore this button - a lover perhaps?  This type of image is often called a “mourning pin” so was someone wearing this on a broken heart?  Anyway, she was lovely and that makes this little pin all the more desirable.  It is Just 1 inch across and the frame is brass.  It closes with a long pin and simple C clasp, typical of Victorian manufacture. Absolutely charming.
