French Memory Framed Hair Art c1800's 6.25L
We have for you another wonderful example of Victorian Hair Art. The saving of locks of hair from someone you loved goes back a very long time, but was elevated in the Georgian to Victorian era to a higher fine art. We have been fortunate to find many exquisite examples of this, that house the decorative hair meticulously placed within. Remember, there were no cameras, so paintings large and small were the choice, but that came at a very high price and was usually reserved for the well to do. This type of art provided another way to preserve the loved ones memory and not as costly. As seen in this group of photos, this has been done in a more delicate fashion. The hair is much finer, not in such large clumps. Then very carefully placed to produce this stunning scenery with trees draping down on both sides of a monument. On top of the monument sits two Hearts shaped vases with flowers, and on the front are the initials; M. A dove with a wreath in its beak flies overhead. This measures 6.25" long top to bottom x 5.5" wide side to side x 7/16 deep front to back with attached hook for hanging and weighs 144.0grams. Another great piece to add to your collection, ready to hang wherever you choose. These charges are the buyers responsibility.
