Postmortem photograph of a baby wearing a beautiful white dress and a crown of flowers. Early 20th Century. Although this may seem gruesome or weird today this was a completely normal method of remembrance in the 19th and early 20th Century.

The frame is made of ebonized wood which has  chipped in places- look at the photos.  The glass has some spots but is uncracked. The glass has been painted brown underneath to give a tortoise-shell effect.

The back of the frame is cardboard and has been resealed with brown tape. There is a nail to the back.
 
Frame measures 17.5x21.5cm/ 6.9x8.4"

Thanks for visiting Cabinet de Merveilles.
