worldsavage:

A most unique take on butterfly wing pendants everywhere, with bright and bold enameling of a pretty damsel. The design of her skirt particularly reflects design consideration to showcase the luminescence of the wings, including tipping up an end fold to reveal contrasting plain and blue colors, and against dollops of news colors in the ‘background’. At about 5cm tall, the canvas allows the enameling to be illustrative and you feel as if you are looking through a peephole into another world, behind her and beyond.

18th c. Skeletal coffin ring
A rare example of an 18th century memento mori skeletal band, dated 1727. A full skeleton, reserved on black enamel, encircles the gold hoop of the ring. Unusually, there is a crown above the skull, signifying death is the master of all, and below the skeletal feet is a tablet engraved with the words memento mori, flanked by symbols of the Passion. The bezel of the ring is in the form of a gold coffin, covered by a faceted crystal, enclosing a skeleton painted in gold on a black ground. To interior of the band are the initials of the deceased, J. B. and the date, 1727.
