An extraordinary natural late Victorian Mediterranean Coral Memento Mori charm.

This antique beautiful hand carved natural orange pinkish Coral skull depicts an unusual featured jaw that captures the viewer's attention - the low left side of the mandible is not carved, a true sign of its age and antique hand carved singularity.

Acquired in Italy from an antique dealer (together with a group of other antique coral pendants), this Victorian Coral beauty is a rare and collectable late 1800s symbolic reminder of mortality.

In good antique condition with small signs of ageing and an uneven aged/used natural quality to it which in my opinion only add to its antique timeless appeal. Please refer to the images.

The skull measures approximately 2 cm (including bail) long by 1.1 cm wide.
The total weigh of the pin is approximately 2 grams.

The chain on image 9 is just used as a reference. 

This is a truly extraordinary piece of jewellery.

Memento mori (Latin: "remember that you have to die") is the medieval Latin Christian theory and practice of reflection on mortality, especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.
