1703 British Pendant at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - From the curators' comments: "This intricate jewel is in the form of a coffin which opens to reveal a panel of woven hair, initials, and an enamelled skull. It is an unflinching reminder of man's mortality while specifically commemorating the death of a particular individual, the now unknown PB. Such graphic imagery was a widely accepted part of the rituals surrounding death in the years around 1700."
