Victorian Funeral Parlour Corpse Picture

Item ID: 2809 | Category: Antique And Vintage


Original old macabre photo showing a dead body in an open casket funeral coffin which aptly illustrates the Victorian cult of mourning. Measures 26 x 20cms. Very morbid but rather peaceful at the same time. The Victorians often had pictures taken of the dead as these were the only ones they had and so they took the opportunity before they were buried in the ground never to be seen again.
