Antique Georgian Memento Mori Skull Coral Pendant 1800s

About

This fabulous Georgian hand carved Memento Mori skull is genuine Georgian. Memento mori means remember that you must die and to cherish each day as it is a reminder of the imminence of death and the hazards of life during the 17thC. Memento mori jewellery was decorated with skulls, crossbones, skeletons, coffins, and worms which all seems very macabre to us today Hand carved from natural coral. Very well carved with a high relief workmanship I haven't cleaned this skull I feel it needs to be sold as bought A fabulous collectors piece of jewellery Purchased in London and steeped in English history. Weighs 3.40 grams Measures 15mm down x 13mm across x 15mm back to front
