QSD638

Post Mortem Victorian Remembrance 1875 19th century wood framed memorial photograph.
Sacred To The Memory Walter Royale.
Died October 9th 1875, aged 10 years, 9 months, 9 days.
What tragic circumstances befell young Walt?
The Jersey boy was much loved.
In life he is posed in studio with an extremely ornate embroidered jacket and seems to stare back from the grave, ageless.
A precious one from us has gone
A voice we loved is stilled
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.

God in his wisdom has recalled
The boon his love had given
And though the body moulders here
The soul is safe in Heaven.

Great wood frame, with fine gold trim.
Photo glare from original wavy glass.

P1

Remembrance Mrs Anna Paulus Walnut Framed Memento 1922 Fine glass and walnut wood frame enclosng a tribute photo and sad death obituary poem.
Just a thought of sweet remembrance
Just a memory fond and true
Just a token of affection,
And a heartache still for you.
Just a sigh for the olden moments,
Just a smile of love anew,
Just a tear in silence falling,
And a yearning just for you.

Mrs. Paulus was 73 when she last sighed. This piece was made by H. F Wendell of Leipsic Ohio in 1917. An interesting bonus was found secreted on the back of this framed treat, three US stamps in very nice condition and included with the sale of this extraordinary and decorative bit of funeral fancy.

This style boiler plate sympathy memento is listed in the Schiffer collectors book, Postmortem Collectibles by C. L. Miller page 48 Neill collection.

Click for more detail...

QSD75

Lost At Sea Victorian Framed Mourning 1890 Ornate gesso, gilt and glass framed memento mori remembrance for William L. Oxenford who died April 1890. Age nine month, a sad 19th century commentary on the day’s longevity. Nautical motif with anchors and winged dove of peace with out day date hint at a drowning or watery grave. Possibly a shipwreck, common at the time.

When I opened the back of this incredible frame I found secreted away, a second death notice in black. Samuel Hartman died December 23 1897 aged 60 years. A mystery for sure, as the mourned loved ones name plate notice was designed to slide into a slot for same.

A memorial poem inscribed reads;

Thy gentle voice now is hushed.
Thy warm true hart is still.
And on thy you and innocent brow,
Is resting death's cold chill

Thy hands are clasped upon thy breast,
We have kissed thy lovely brow.
And in our aching hearts we know,
We have no darling now.

The Brown publishing Company Warren Ohio.


Measuring thirty three and a half by twenty one and a half this moving memorial will require loving care in packing, a specialty at Tear Drop Memories.

Neca eos omnes. Deus suos agnoset Pope Innocent III
