Up for sale is a wonderful antique mourning box measuring 2 3/4' x 1 3/4' x 5/8". It is shaped like a miniature book. There is a reverse painted glass portrait of a woman on one side and the motto "FORGET ME NOT" on the reverse. Inside is a mirror in tough shape. The edges are brass and the inside is early cardboard, the spine is painted metal. The hair of the deceased is inside wrapped in an old newspaper with 1888 mentioned in an advertisement. I believe the box to also be from the same time period.
