Victorian Memento Mori Framed Photo of Dead Child.

Rather morbid transition carried out by Victorian society. Due to the high immortality rate during this period it became popular to employ a photographer to photograph your love ones after they had passed on. This was done normally in a formal sitting. The small framed photo is encased in a black painted embossed case with brass hook and eye. The internal contents incorporates a glass plate of the deceased child in a sitting position secured in place with a gilt gold coloured frame. The opposite side of the frame has a padded suede cushion to protect the glass plate when closed. The piece measures 7.5cms x 6.5cms.
