Antique Mourning Hair Art Memento Faith Love Hope Relic dated 1869

This is a rare mourning hair picture. A touching and unusual piece as it doesn’t express only the pain about a lost loved one, it shows also HOPE – a view of the future. It is entirely crafted from hair, blonde and chocolate brown, a wonderful warm mix. Fine placed and worked.

The center is a tomb under a beautiful weeping willow tree with fine branches. To the cross a fine flower garland. At its base a lovely heart with the initials of the lost one and an anchor. The three symbols for Faith, Love and Hope.
I read M N passed on September the fifth 1869.

Around top and tree branches and plants.

This sentimental work seems to be untouched, despite the dent of the protecting paper to the back. The hair work is protected by the original glass. The golden frame is also original and shows some wear. The hair is fixed on milk glass, this one shows a few age traces and spots.
The condition is very good, a few loses of the hair present, the hair is still inside. And some dust.

Nothing unusual for a ca. 150 years old piece.

The picture measures 11.2 x 9.6 inches with frame.
