From the middle ages into the early twentieth century woman collected their hair to use in the creation of artwork. This handmade art would be given to a cherished family member or friend so that they literally had a piece of them as they traveled or moved away. It was also common to make art as part of the mourning process for a loved one.
This item is in a vintage frame (masking tape around frame need replacing), and looks to be related to a wedding or baby shower with the lady having actual hair. The attention to detail of the dress and matching bonnet is wonderful.
This item is perfect as it is attractive, rare and unique all at the same time!
