(8 x 10 In) This is an original vintage cabinet photograph from the 1900s. It shows an image of a deceased child laying peacefully as if sleeping in an ornate glass topped casket, flower arrangements adorning the top and bottom. In the Victorian and Edwardian eras it was commonplace to memorialize lost loved ones with a post-mortem photograph. Especially when a person died at a young age there might not be any other images of the family member, so a portrait like this would have been a cherished and personal memento. The cabinet board the photo is mounted on is in GOOD condition, there is heavy wear at the corners and general discoloration from age. The photo is in VERY GOOD condition, a little soft in contrast and quite a bit of staining. Such an unusual image though that the condition just adds character.
