This is a large enameled opaline glass, slightly turquoise--more of a Bristol--blue emblazoned with a pansy and rose and set in very plain, tested 24 karat gold. It measures 1 and 7/8 by 1 and 5/8 inches and is in excellent condition. It does have a beauty mark though, from its making: a mysterious white dot in the meld.
Wikipedia says: "The language of flowers, sometimes called floriography, is a means of cryptological communication through the use or arrangement of flowers." In Victorian England, the pansy flower was used for secret courting and the rose of course means love. (When Victorian ladies went to the spas of Europe for fun and romance, they asked their prospects "What's your flower?")
