This is a great example of how not every antique with a lock of hair is a memorial: This is a baptism souvenir from the early 20th century, a style common to Germany & Eastern Europe. Usually a piece of cloth is decorated with one or more wax ornaments & dresden paper. In this case, we are lucky & the mother added a little flower woven from the child’s hair at the bottom. The entire piece is mounted on an envelope, and there is a loose lock of this same hair inside. The box it’s in should have a lid which is missing; otherwise it’s in great condition.
