Item details

Victorian Post Mortem Baby-1800s Cabinet Photo. This is a mid 19th century Professionally taken Postmortem Cabinet Photograph featuring an infant. This may be a girl due to the long dress, and that is my guess but then it was not uncommon for boys and girls to be dressed this way when so young, so I am unsure of the sex, I just know it is very sad thing it passed so young.

The photo is in antique aged condition, it does show some slight scratching to the surface. (see photos) and some fading. It is still very precious.

Nowadays it would seem very macabre to photograph loved ones prior to burial, yet, it was quite common at the time to take posed portrait photos of the recently deceased as photographs were still a luxury.

The entire photo measures approx. 4" tall x 2 1/2" wide. The back has a beautifully ornate photographer advertising.

I think it is German as it has the studio details of the reverse side.

We always attempt to ship your item(s) within 2 days of transaction payment. Sometimes however, events such as Holidays can hinder this schedule.
We like use a lot of shipping recyclables,and are creative in our use of our items and cartons from our recycle bin to ensure you the "greenest" and most cost efficient method to bring your item(s) to you intact!
International items will be sent using either USPS First Class International or Priority, depending on the size and weight of the shipping fees on item(s) ordered.

This takes time and further delays the item being available for sale. If we do agree to a refund there may be a re-stock charge associated with this decision due to this inconvenience.
