    (13 items)

    An extremely fine example of a faceted Stuart Crystal memento mori slide with an enameled skeleton holding a staff in one hand and a tempus fugit (hourglass symbolizing "time flees") in the other. The skeleton is placed above a bed of brunette hair.

    The skeleton is flanked by two high karat gold cipher wire initials.

    The sawtooth bezel slide case is 22 karat gold.

      I love all this memento mori stuff...

      Love the contrast between the elaborate lettering and the skeleton here :)

      Hi austrohungaro.

      My love of memento mori pieces are border line obsession.

      Check out the two memento mori rings and wax seal fob intaglio I listed in memento mori show and tell.

      They're great! Well, each one of us here have our little obsessions. Memento mori is a very interesting one ;)
