Victorian Mourning Wreath Hair Art Shadow Box
Poor Tillie, just 13 years old when she left this mortal coil. Her passing was commemorated with this spectacular mourning wreath shadow box comprised of wax and dried flowers topped with a delicate blossom of human hair. In the center is an intricately engraved plaque that reads:
Died February 10th 1878
Aged 13 yrs 10 Months 19 Days
Tag on back for Le Moults
Natural Flower Preserving Laboratory.
Very good condition considering it is 140 years old. There is a small quantity of small, loose flowers in the bottom of the diorama.
Shadow box dimensions approx. 21" in diameter
