Ref AF2 Stuart Crystal Memento Mori Ring
High carat gold slide, dated to reverse 1686, later converted to a ring. The slide has a compartment with a ground of woven hair and a skull device surmounting the name John Fox and the initials TCM, within a gold wirework surround. It is unusual to find a Stuart slide inscribed with a full name rather than just initials. The compartment is covered by a faceted rock crystal. The ring is size J [US 4 and 5/8] and can be sized a little, and the Stuart crystal measures 3/4 of an inch by 2/3 of an inch. In very fine and wearable condition.
