Hello to all CW , Here are a few of my Victorian mourning pieces I hope you like them!
The fingers of the hand are symbolic each finger has a spiritual meaning, the tip of the middle finger represemts heaven and the hope of eternal life in heaven the thumb represents salvation .
Hands were very symbolic in Victorian times and held different meanings according to how they were posed . I think it is made from bog oak ? I'm not sure.
The rolled gold hair fob is in the shape of an eye this was origionally on a mourning hair necklace now I wear it as a charm on my Victorian bracelet my great great grandmother is pictured in the locket.
PS. Forgot to mention the hand has a sterling silver band/cap
