Antique Memento Mori Mourning Card - Holy Souls in Purgatory

US$175.00

This very rare antique mourning card is filled with spiritual symbolism and dated 1867. It is inscribed in Dutch and of Belgian origin. On the reverse of the card is a dedication to the dearly departed.

The illustration depicts St Michael´s scale of justice held over Holy Souls in purgatory.  Above it is a French inscription "meditations on death".

The inscription underneath the illustration is in French and loosely translates to: "Lord; my heart will be overjoyed when you deliver me: I will sing the praises of my Lord who fills me with graces, and I will celebrate in my hymns the name of the most high."

This exquisite piece would look beautiful mounted on black velvet or set in an antique frame.
