Hair Art Memento M
This is a French sentimental hair artwork mourning miniature memento created by the hair artist C.Sevin located in the 9 rue de la fromagerie in Lyon (France). It is entirely crafted from hair as a lasting memento of a lost loved one. This mourning art memento features strand of hairs and charming small flowers surrounding the initial ML (I guess). The details are beautiful. The work of art is circled by a wood black frame and protected by a convex glass. The backplate is made of milk white opaline glass.
This one of a kind piece is a great devotional item of more than 150 years old.
Please take a close look at the photos, they are an integral part of the description.
Good antique condition with some normal signs of ages: a crack on the wooden frame and a splinter on the backplate (last photo).
