You probably would never guess but I come from a long line of hoarders in particular four maiden great aunts with Victorian town houses stuffed to the gills with curiosities. I've inherited some very bizarre pieces from them, there's so much in fact that we've got four sheds in the garden full of strange and wonderful things that serve no useful purpose whatsoever.
Here's some family pieces of mourning jewellery that I've inherited:
A Regency-era locket made from bog oak
.......and filled with a lock of a loved one's hair.
A huge gold plated brooch (or can also be worn as a pendant) bearing the image of my dashing Great-Great-Grandfather.
Some Victorian brooches made from Whitby Jet.
Vintage pinafore dress (eBay), 1980's belt (Charity Shop), Clogs (Car boot sale)
