Description

This is a beautiful glass mourning button that is encased in a brass setting on a 24" brass chain, which can be shortened - just ask!

Walk through an old New England cemetery and you will see that death came early and often in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Disease, childbirth, and the harsh environment all contributed to the high mortality rate. As a result, the specter of death was a persistent presence that permeated the lives of New Englanders. One way in which they coped with these constant losses was to memorialize their lost loved ones by wearing mourning jewelry.

This piece would have been a button on a mourning dress, most likely worn by a recent widow.
