The gift of an eye miniature from one lover to another was meant to remain a secret, and documented examples are rare. Probably the most famous is Mrs. Fitzherbert's Eye, which was painted by Richard A. Cosway as a love token for the Prince of Wales (later George IV). Maria Fitzherbert's eye portrait, set within a locket, was worn by the prince as a memento of her love. Lovers eye ~ 18th century Mourning art
