Pendant in the form of a crowned heart, front view. Gold background and double-sided with faceted rock crystal covers in hinged gold collets enclosing two panels of silk embroidered with pictures in hair. Its front shows a dove bearing a sprig of forget-me-not. The reverse shows a landscape with a couple walking towards a house. Both scenes are traditional symbols of wooing and marriage.
1701 AD - 1800 AD
