Various: Various c. 100 memorial cards, including three framed and glazed, dated mainly between 1860 and 1910. Designs include several embossed 'pierced lace' designs, through to later printed and chromolithographic cards. Included amongst many others is a remembrance card for Prince Albert (1861), a funeral ticket for the Duchess of Norfolk (1877) and an attractive folding card in its original black bordered envelope (1907).

Tombs, funerary urns, angels and mourning figures appeared as though in marble low-relief ...

In a further elaboration, cards might be mounted on larger 'frame' cards. These were similarly treated ... Read more
