Not all examples of Victorian hairwork are memorials, but this one is. This handmade assemblage featuring gimp worked hair in a shadow box and a German inscription is a memorial for a little girl who died at age 5. The hair would have been hers, the arrangement most likely gimp worked by her mother. The little beaded heart attached to the bottom is especially touching. Refer to photos for size and condition: Excellent. Ships fully insured.
