Item details

Vintage from the 1900s

Materials

card mounting, card stock, Photo paper

Such a beautiful & precious memento mori --- this antique post mortem image of an angelic baby. Oddly enough, the photographer's imprint is 'Daines Bros, Gravesend.' Card mounting is approx. 6" x 3-3/4" with edge & corner wear, soiling, foxing, and some glue residue on back of card. Oval photo measures about 3" x 2" and is in good condition with some tiny scuffs. Watermark does not actually appear on photo.
