Description

Mourning cards became popular during the early 1800s. Victorian mourning customs were comprised of rituals and strict rules of etiquette. It was expected that the mourning card would be saved and placed in an album, or hung in a frame as a keepsake. Here is a heavy black card memorializing a death in 1889 – it measures about 4 by 6 inches and is lettered in gold with intricate artwork.

It is respectfully offered for sale at only $12 or best reasonable offer.
