Antique Victorian Sailor's Hair Memorial, Rare form of an anchor
A RARE, possibly unique, Victorian Sailor's Hair Memorial in the form of an anchor, in an Ebonized surface shadow box frame with a broad gold leaf fillet and a gold leaf outer border. The hair anchor is decorated with small pearls and has a velvet background. 12" X 14" overall dimensions. Hair Memorials were common in the Victorian era, but were typically in the form of wreaths or bouquets of flowers. This example is a finely made example in the form of an anchor, perhaps made by a sailor's wife or bride. ** WE GUARANTEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF OUR MERCHANDISE AS REPRESENTED ** 1220BX21
