Large 18th century Italian seed pearl and micro-mosaic mourning piece depicting the Paschal Lamb – a symbol of sacrifice. Although more than 200 years old this piece is still in the original fitted box. A beveled-glass covered compartment behind the piece contains a simple curl of hair. The beauty and bright colors of this pendant seem to contradict its somber origin until the motif is considered; motifs are often the only indication of a mourning piece.
