This is a Victorian period 4 3/4" x 3 3/4" photo of an elderly lady in 'widow’s weeds.' "By the 19th century, mourning behavior in England had developed into a complex set of rules, particularly among the upper classes. For women, the customs involved wearing heavy, concealing, black clothing, and the use of heavy veils of black crêpe." This matted photo of the lady in black is in an 8 1/2" x 6 1/2" glass-covered, wooden frame. It is marked 'Holland & Kuhn. Pictures & Picture Framing.Artists' Materials, 117 Granville St., Halifax, N.S.' The photo is in very good protected condition, however the paper on the back of the frame is loose and the wooden frame has corner bumps.
This sweet photo will take you back in time to when someone selected special treasures for posterity – and for you. The period frame evokes an interesting past as well. This photo of a lady in black will be a good gift for those curious about an earlier time or an excellent addition to your collection of vintage photos and art. Let this photo from the past help you to create new precious memories. Thank you for visiting our store.
