Pair Of Victorian Mourning / Funeral Cards

  • H: 41 cm (16 1/8")
  • W: 36 cm (14 3/16")
  • D: 3 cm (1 3/16")

Pair of Victorian memorial cards, mounted in their original faux decorated frames, both in excellent condition.

During the Victorian age, fashions changed from direct invitations to a funeral to memorial cards such as these which would provide the name of the deceased and the date of the upcoming funeral.

In the mid 19th Century, these cards became very elaborate, in pierced paper/ card and wood. 

Depicting angels, cherubs, garlands and urns, the larger in remembrance of Martha Bradbury 1877, the other of Jane Bradbury in 1865.

Touching example of funerary symbolism in Victorian England.
