This Georgian memento mori wax seal fob has a finely engraved skull carnelian intaglio with the motto above, "Fear Wavering," and initials, "FW."
Definitely a grim reminder that "We all must die, so live life to the fullest."
The third photo shows the wax seal impression in play doh.
These wax seal fobs were suspended from watch chains and used to seal letters.
