Unique antique pre-Georgian 18k gold plated silver Memento Mori Skull Tooth Urn. Excellent condition for its age.
A link to the tradition of the memento mori - an object designed to remind us that life is brief and that we should seize the moment while we are here. Since the beginning of time, the skull is been used as a symbol of mortality, victory, the ultimate Memento Mori. The skull represented the contemplation of eternity. In Elizabethan England, it was an emblem of bawds, rakes and sexual adventure.
Its a symbol men, in particular, have always loved to paint, carve, cast, and wear. A must for every serious collector or museum. Get Supersized Images & Free Image Hosting.
