Ref  IM5   Memento Mori Slide

A superior quality and intricately detailed Stuart crystal slide, circa 1680. The engraved high carat gold slide contains a compartment with a ground of woven hair. Surmounting the hair ground are five colourful enamel memento mori devices - a winged hour glass [tempus fugit], an erect skeleton, an angel, a skull and gravedigger's tools. To centre are the gold wire-work initials ED. The compartment is covered by a densely faceted rock crystal. The slide measures 3/4 of an inch by 2/3 of an inch and is immaculate.
