Antique Memento Mori Child Photo Silver Albumen On Milk Glass Victorian Compact OB De Morat

We are offering an antique oval maroon velvet compact that opens to a memento mori photograph, most likely from the 1860s-1880s. This piece depicts a pre-mortem photo of a child dressed in his Sunday best framed in a compact. This piece is the perfect addition to any collection.

Measures 3 3/8" H x  3" W closed, 6" wide open.

Inside the compact is marked “O B De Morat/ 2 South 8th St/ Philadelphia”.

Good condition with wear to the velvet on the outside of the compact and some aging to the photograph inside. The glass covering the photograph has cracked at the bottom and is in a few pieces, but it does not  jeopardize the integrity of the piece.
