Framed Memorial for Little Girl, including Hairwork


Beautiful 1895 lithographic memorial for a little girl named Cloetta Halsey Giffin, who died at the age of five in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. The space below “In Memoriam” was there for the family to insert a picture of the deceased person, however in this case Cloetta’s hair was used. The frame measures 15″ x 12″.
