Amatory love token, probably English, circa 1650 - 1680, a gold pendant with two enameled love birds within a border inscribed in black enamel script: Love is a comfort.

The pendant is attached to a gem-set cross (emerald, ruby, rock crystal, pearls), enameled in vibrant colors. The pendant is enameled to both obverse and reverse.

A rare early amatory piece with much enamel still intact. It is in a later fitted case.

    Honestly no words can describe what I am thinking & feeling at the moment I knew it was nice but at closer inspection it's in another ball game. The age is another thing
