Over two hundred years old this sombre Georgian mourning tribute; a moire silk ribbon, symbol of loss, the clasp setting of 18ct yellow gold holds a central Rock Crystal locket surrounded by enamelled and a frame of sparkly faceted 'French Jet.' With an inscription to the reverse to 'Han'h Doorman obt 30 Jan 1807 aet 68', we imagine this would have been worn by a daughter, sister or friend as a poignant memento. After a little research we have found that Hannah lived and died in Wanstead, Essex but sadly all else is lost to time.
