Rare antique Victorian beaded mourning wreath, bisque porcelain angel, velvet
Up for your consideration is an outstanding antique Victorian era intricately beaded mourning wreath with an central velvet oval on which is mounted an angel holding a crucifix. I believe the angel is porcelain bisque The beads include opaque white beads, opalescent light blue-gray beads and white opalescent beads. There is damage around the edge including broken wires and missing beads. It’s not unexpected for a piece this old. There is also a certain amount of dust embedded between the beads. I did a lot of cleaning of the wreath before listing this, but some dirt still remains. Please look carefully at all the pictures and ask any questions ahead of time. The beads are strung on sturdy wire. The piece as a whole feels sound. The angel is in good condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. It has some dust in the crevasses. There is an existing loop of wire on the back from which the wreath can be hung. This could probably stand to be framed in a shadow box to keep further dust away from it. The wreath is 12″ high by 10 1/2″ wide. The angel is 4 3/4 high. The velvet part is 6 1/8″ high by 4 3/4″ wide. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind rare find!
