Description: This is a charming, little, Victorian shadowbox piece that contains a lock of hair tied with a ribbon that has been mounted to a blue, paper backing that is decorated with paper ornamentation and dried flowers. There is gold paper or plastic lacing lining the inside of the shadowbox frame which is painted gold on the inside. The frame is embellished further with a floral design on the outside of the front and paper along the sides and back. This piece appeals to me as a sentimental item such as baby's first hair or a love token perhaps?Materials: Wood or cardboard frame, glass, human hair, paper, paint, dried flowers, ribbon.
