Regular price €240

This is a French Napoleon III era sentimental hair artwork mourning miniature memento. It is entirely crafted from hair as a lasting memento of a lost loved one. This mourning art memento features brown and blond strand of hair and a willow branch. The work of art is circled by a brass frame and protected by a convex glass. I guess that originally, there was a black wooden frame. 
The backplate is made of milk white opaline glass. It is gorgeous when you look at it through the light. 

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.
