The Victorian Hair Art of Mary Jane Walker-1834

Pam Broughton of Norwich England was excited to share with us this unique period art of the Victorian Age.   She wrote, “These are photos of the family heirloom made by Mary Jane Walker which include locks of hair from family members. I bet the group at the recent Long family reunion would have enjoyed seeing this.”

Pam’s Great-Great Grandmother Mary Jane Walker embroidered this piece using her and her families hair.  Could be a goldmine for DNA in the future.
