An extremely fine and very unusual custom made multi-locket mourning brooch/pendant. Dated 1838, its made in the shape of the cross patée, a strong and meaningful symbol, and each of its five separate locket compartments is glazed with natural rock crystal rather than glass, each hand cut and highly polished panel with deep and wide bevels. Each section contains a very finely made hair, pearl and gold wire display over opal glass backing panels, and the centre one also has a gold monogram cypher for the initials FMB.

The back is where the real action is though, bearing a beautifully cursive hand engraved reference to Isiah 26:3-4'You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal. , the date of death:'Ob. Highly personalised passages like this are very unusual and only seen in the very best pieces so are extremely sought-after.

They show not only the thought, care and attention to detail above and beyond the norm for their loved one, but also their wealth, as no ordinary person would have had the means to commission such a piece. It's in excellent condition throughout, with no loss or damage apart from a cracked internal opal glass panel - very difficult to find so only mentioned in trying to achieve full disclosure. It weighs 27.4 grams and measures just shy of 1.75 inches square. The final photo shows it with a US penny (1 cent) coin for scale, which measures 19 mm / ¾ of an inch diameter. What's more, I offer layaway deals so there's no need to let any of my listings slip through your fingers - just ask!
