A dead little girl surrounded by her dolls. Placing a child in a chair as if they had fallen asleep amongst their favorite toys was a common tableau in Victorian Momento Mori.

Post mortem

Post Mortem woman

A particularly beautiful young girl laid out in the parlor, circa 1910. It was not uncommon to dress dead young girls in what looked like a wedding veil and dress to symbolize their purity as they go to 'meet God'.

Early post mortem, probably no later than 1860, and looks to be privately produced. There are no publisher markings or any sort of description on it which you'd normally find on commercially-staged genre stereoviews.
