Victorian beaded necklace

Antique-Victorian-Mourning-Necklace-Pendant-Faceted-Glass-and-Brass-Seed-Beads/142632500878

From the item listing: A stunning, rare early Victorian loom seed beaded mourning necklace with pendant. Each decorative piece is connected by 8 strands of beads. The seed beads are black faceted glass and faceted brass. The brass seed beads being those that detail the motifs of flies/bees and outside edges of the connecting strands. They also form the laurel leaf motif on the pendant. The laurel leaves on this necklace would represent peace and triumph, and worldly accomplishment, while the fly, being a popular Victorian naturalist motif was a symbol of humility. In 1860 Victorians had a passion for wearing all things insects and this necklace is a fabulous example of this vogue.

Narrow panel, probably for a towel rack. Originally the background was an allover bright red, but probably that was not included in the original pattern.

Pullan, Ladies Manual of Fancy Work: Golden Tapestry Patterns, are designed in three shades of gold, with a plain dark ground. Two of the gold shades are a sort of brownish yellow, the lightest always yellow silk. With claret, blue or green ground, this style of work is very rich and chaste looking. Borders for table-covers are especially handsome in it; and by care with the grounding it will correspond with any kind of furniture. https://archive.org/stream/ladysmanualoffan1859pull#page/30/mode/2up
