An exquisite Antique Victorian cross pendant modelled in black resin and inlaid with a detailed Micro Mosaic of colourful Forget me nots across the centre which was put together skilfully by a true master of the art. Forget me nots in an old German tale were discovered by two lovers walking by a river one day. After picking a beautiful bouquet of blue flowers for his loved one the poor gentleman sadly fell in the river and was swept away but before he vanished he yelled out ‘Forget-me-not!’ giving the flowers their name and a long lasting symbolism of love and remembrance. The piece is fitted with a Gold bale and is backed in a base metal that shines like a high carat Yellow Gold. The pendant has two faint hairline fractures but otherwise the cross and the mosaic are in good condition for their age. It’s complete with its original fitted box with purple velvet interior to store it in.
