Rare Victorian French Mourning Locket Brooch on Velvet/Ex Voto

I am so excited to have purchased this very unusual, rare Victorian locket/brooch from France.

It is dated from the early 19th Century and is a large Locket/Brooch which is mounted on some plush velvet which has gold brocade trim all around. I have been told that this is an Ex Voto or a Mourning Souvenir and it would have been hung in the wall of a church, as a gift to the Saints, in gratitude or fulfilment of a vow. I

t really is an unusual decorative antique and very beautiful. Please message me for more details

Welcome to our new online shop

The Vintage Home Shop is not just a shop and was never meant to be one per se, but rather a natural progression of a hobby, an evolution of a passion. To colour one’s home with imagination in order to convey a sense of self and individuality is not done by merely ticking the boxes of a catalogue.

In a world where brand names and high street labels plague street corners and wardrobes, the same can be said for the living rooms and kitchens of consumers.

Sourcing beautiful and inspiring items with their own history has infatuated us, from our innocent adolescences to the beautification of our own homes. We travel the country and further in search of the most uniquely intriguing as well as aesthetically pleasing pieces of home decoration that spans decades of standing the test of time.

We take pride in sourcing only items we would want in our own home and hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
