    Found this piece at an antique shop today. I never came across one before. It seems to have the woman's name, NY address , and pat'd/84 etched into the back. Tough to read around the bottom part where the date is though

      Would it be possible to get a photo of the back without the glare - it might be more readable.

      US
      La Rue ( Street )
      953 Broadway NY
      Patd ? Patel ? / NY

      Sule Makerm or something like that for the name????

      Trying rubbing some Baby powder Talc ( or any Talc ) over the letters to highlight them and take another pic....Thanks

      Ya the name is tough but i agree with you that it's Makerm, as for the first name no idea lol, the last line it looks like pat'd / 84 to me

      I love this!! I'm fascinated with mourning items from the Victorian period. In fact, I even have a few mourning top hats in my collection.
