Subject: 	lovelocks

A student just asked me about lovelocks, referring to "Deformed's" 
lovelock in Much Ado. I can find good explanations for what a lovelock 
is, beginning with reference to Pope's Rape of the Lock. However, I 
cannot find any painting or early drawing to show how such a lovelock 
would have been worn or used. Can anyone help me with this?
