From my private collection of Victorian art: Antique, Victorian, sepia print of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's "Beata Beatrix," an oil painting the artist began in 1864 and finished in 1870. Influenced by Dante Alighieri's 13th-century work, “Vita Nuova," it portrays Alighieri’s beloved, Beatrice, in an ecstatic state at the moment of her death just as the soul leaves the body. This work is seen as a mourning tribute from Rossetti to his own beloved, Lizzie Siddal, who died from an overdose of laudanum in 1862, only two years after her marriage to Rossetti. It was Lizzie’s face her painted as Beatrix. Rossetti was torn apart when Lizzie died. While it has been suggested that he only married her out of pity because she suffered from grave illness or because of his guilt for having mistreated her, there was no doubt he mourned her passing. If you look closely, you can see a figure of Alighieri looking at Love in the background and a dove carrying an opium poppy nearing her chest. ~~ Commentary adapted from research I completed in 2016 on the subject of Pre-Raphaelite women. #dantegabrielrossetti #rossetti #beatabeatrix #dantealighieri #dante #vitanuova #lizziesiddal #laudanum #opium #death #mourning #mourningart #love #prerapheliteart #preraphaelitewomen #victorianart #victorianprint #19thcenturyart #historian #arthistory #portalsoftimevintage

Oh, Mother, thy gentle voice is hushed,
Thy warm, true heart is still ;
And on thy pale and peaceful face
Is resting death’s cold chill.
Thy hands are clasped upon thy breast,
We have kissed thy marble brow,
And in our aching hearts we know
We have no mother now.
🖤
Today another angel ascended to heaven when my beloved mother passed early this morning, my hand holding hers, as her last breath escaped. Rest In Peace, My Dear Mother. You will remain in my heart always. Gone But Not Forgotten. 🖤 With Love Forever from your daughter.

Antique Sad Hour clock which was used to indicate the time of death of the deceased. Sometimes referred to in modern times as the "death clock.” It was used as a coffin plaque that could be screwed onto the lid of the coffin (and if you look closely you can see the screw holes). Some suggest these may also have been displayed during services in funeral homes. American patent info on the back. Late 19th or early 20th century, c. 1900 or thereabouts. Rare piece in nice condition. Swipe for more photos.

SOLD. Beautiful, Georgian Era, 9K gold, mourning ring for Mary Fentiman (1752-1807). The outside has lovely, black and white enamel with gold lettering which reads:
Mary Fentiman.OB:23.December:1807.AET55. From this we know that she died in 1807 at age 55.
I found a marriage record for Mary which indicates that she was married to James Payne in Kent in 1792. The inside bears a later inscription from the Victorian Era for Anne Money Rackham (1830-1867) that reads:
In Memory of Anne Money Rackham.Obt.27th Sept.1867.Aet 37. The inscription tells us that she died at age 37 in 1867. I found Anne's death record and burial transcript which indicate she resided in Norfolk. The center hair locket contains loosely-woven, brown hair, presumably for Mary. What a stunning piece inside and out! Size 8.5. #mourningring #mourning #mourningjewelry #georgianring #georgianjewelry #victorianmourning #mourninghair #hairjewelry #rappinghand #oddities #death #memorialring #antiquering #antiquejewelry #vintagejewelry #ringsofinstagram #ringoftheday #showmeyourrings #ringaddict #jewelryaddiction #jewelryforsale #portalsoftimevintage

“Wanna try me?” Tura Satana in “Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” directed by Russ Meyer in 1965.

Antique Odd Fellows, heart in hand, stick pin from the 19th century. A rare, old piece from my personal collection. The book “As Above So Below” explains that the heart in hand is a reminder to Odd Fellows that, “whatever the hand may find to do, let the heart follow.” In all endeavors, one’s actions must be in accordance with the heart. ❤️ ✋I’m not sure about selling this one as I’ve had it in my personal collection for some time. See my last share for another pin that’s available. #ioof #oddfellows #heartinhand #antiquepin #stickpin #tiepin #lapelpin #fraternal #masonic #antiquejewelry #19thcentury #folkart #personalcollection #jewelryaddict #portalsoftimevintage

Update: SOLD. Antique, enamel, fraternal, heart pin with clasped hands border. I believe it’s an old #oddfellows piece based on the #symbolism but otherwise Masonic. See the old c clasp and tube hinge fixtures on the back and the patina indicating it’s an oldie. Has a few battle scars but still charming. Please excuse the glare.

Update: SOLD.*** I was surprised this piece didn’t sell Saturday at the #odditiesfleamarket, but it was kind of tucked amongst the coffin pieces. A phenomenal, vintage, #1980s, sterling silver, #baphomet pin. This particular image of Baphomet is based on an illustration #eliphaslevi completed in 1854. The words on his arms are “solve” and “coagula” which may be translated as “separate” and “join together” expressing the concept of #polarity or “dissolve” and “coagulate” as opposite types of #alchemical processes. For Levi, these words along with the symbols such as the #pentagram on the forehead, horns, breasts, the #caduceus, one arm pointing upward one pointing downward, relate to #hermetical concepts described in the #theemeraldtablet which is said to be an ancient piece written by #hermestrismegistus or #thricegreathermes, but it first appeared during the Medieval Period written in Arabic. <A brief digression: The Egyptian #godofwisdom #Thoth was #Hermes to the #Greeks because they #hellenized Egyptian culture and considered their version superior. Also, the ancient Greek and Latin texts that survived were preserved by early Christian monks and Muslim scholars. Ancient Greek was lost to westerners by the 6th century, but the Arabic texts were translated into Latin from the 12th century on. Scholars say the The Emerald Tablet is an Arabic text c. 6th-8th century, but Hermes Trismegistus was mentioned in Ancient Greek hermetic texts from much earlier.> The symbolism of the Baphomet piece relates to ancient #hermeticism and concepts such as #asabovesobelow and the relation of the microcosm and macrocosm, mercy and justice, androgyny, intelligence, elevation of the soul above the material body, eternal life, and other concepts related to #hermeticism #alchemy #kabbalah and the #occult. Levi’s Baphomet has also been used by the #satanictemple most notably in recent years when they installed Baphomet statues in public places including in Arkansas recently in protest of a 2015 bill allowing the Ten Commandments statue and to demonstrate their First Amendment rights while also celebrating religious diversity. #portalsoftimevintage #vintagejewelry #historian

Wow, the #odditiesfleamarket was off the hook yesterday! I didn’t have a chance to take pictures before we got swamped and I hastily snuck these photos from inside my booth part way through because we were busy all day! I literally just held my phone out and randomly snapped a few while answering questions. It was more than fabulous meeting many of you yesterday or seeing you in person for the first time! Many thanks to those of you who stopped in. I don’t know if @cadillaxandcrucifix and @riposaantiques know it, but they brightened my day a couple times. Check out their pages if you haven’t yet. Also, I can’t express my gratitude to @myveiledlady enough for helping out yesterday and I was so happy to see you! I was also completely taken by my neighbors for the day @blackphoenixalchemylab and only wish I had a chance to try every last one of their magical perfumes! Be sure to like their page if you haven’t yet and check out their beautiful website. I would love to work with them again! Last but not least by far, a HUGE thank you to the team at @odditiesfleamarket @ryanmatthewcohn @reginamariecohn and @meaganmeli for putting together this amazing event and for having me as a vendor.
