I believe the attached pictures are from the victorian era and are made with real human hair. Can anyone tell me the approximate value of these wall hangings. Thank you.

    These are definitely not from the Victorian era. It's hard to tell about the hair.. it's possible that the hair on these is from humans... perhaps when a child got a first haircut, the hair was attached to one of these little prints. But then again, the hair might just as easily be wool, synthetic fibers, doll hair, etc.
    I can't see the artwork very well, but they look like they date from the 20s-40s. The cute one of the little girl with the teddy bear looks a little newer than the others.
    Perhaps you can take better photos, and re-post them so I can look at them more closely. I will say, they are adorable.
