About this item

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 a tomb marked with a cross under a willow. The details are beautiful. 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.
