Most charming late 18th century mourning pendant. It is high carat gold, in the form of a draped urn and enamelled in red and white, the colours of love and innocence. The pendant contains a sepia miniature of love, his bow inverted and resting on a heart as he weeps under a willow tree. To reverse sepia initials JIC within a wreath of macerated hair. The pendant measures 1 and 1/8 inches by 2/3 of an inch. Small but perfectly formed.
