This is a silver memento cross from 1917, during the first World War. I found it together with some victorian charms on a flea market some years ago.
Sint Pieters Buiten is not so far from where I live.
I'm not sure it has anything to do with the war, we will never know for sure. De Vreese is a very common name in this country.
The cross is very thin and not really even. The carving is crude, almost as if someone in the trenches did it.
I never wear it, but I do like it. Especially the little heart with arrow. This must be done with real love.
Hope you enjoy it.
