This gold and peal barrette probably belonged to Emma Abraham nee Dreyfus. Upon immigration to the United States and moving to Cincinnati, Ohio, the Dreyfus family changed the spelling of their name to Dreyfoos.

Emma married Victor Abraham in 1870. They had one daughter, Therese Abraham (b. 1879) whom they raised in Cincinnati. Victor died in 1920 and Emma in 1935.
