Teardrop Memories

Hand painted wood and gesso plaque with highly raised relief, this very old grave yard souvenir harks back to a more glamorous day. Celebrity funerals were common place in Glendale California’s most famous Hollywood star final destination. Few know how ever that this chapel was used for weeding ceremonies for the likes of US president Ronald Regan to first wife Jane Wyman in 1940. Jean Harlow funeral service was held at Wee Kirk as well as James Jimmy Stewart.

Modeled after Glencairn, this chapel in Forest lawn Memorial Cemetery is well depicted in this unusual plaque. Some age cracks in gesso and paint loss add to the vintage charm from a cematery first opened in 1917. Likely pre war this memorial measures seven inches by five and a half.

Tear Drop Memories offers fine Post Mortem photography, rare funeral collectibles and interesting cemetery art and death related books. Please visit our other two Tias web shops ; North Fork Pets And Antiques, a great shop for antique Victorian bird cages and vintage animal collectibles and Maidens Memoirs, the place for old Love letters, Victorian scrap books and vintage diaries.
