Part of a large collection I am listing:
Offered for sale is this gorgeous 19th Century glass intaglio tassie / loose seal. It shows the Grim Reaper (death) holding his scythe in one hand and an egg timer in the other while cupid is rowing a boat in choppy waters (life's journey). The French words 'L'amour fait passer le temps' translates to 'Love makes time pass'. A wonderful and meaningful intaglio.
Originally used in seals / wheel seals but are collectible in their own right.
This measures approx 19 mm by 17 mm, and 9 mm deep, and is in good condition with a tiny chip on the top edge and another small chip to the base.
This will arrive in a brand new gift box.
