This terrific antique Italian grey lava 'memento mori' charm or amulet is hand carved in a 3D human skull...very well done. It has such a great look to it!

Back in the 1800s every day was Halloween! They were a bit obsessed with death. It started in the Georgian Era when folks would wear skulls in rings, or something like this, a charm. They were called Momento Mori...Latin for "Remember, you must Die"

A lovely antique charm - wearable and very collectable...ideal for a chain, I wouldn't recommend a bracelet as it might chip the skull with wear.

CONDITION: All original and very good. Slightest signs of wear- slight scratching and Chip to corner of jaw/side of skull (see 4th pic) and tiny one possibly on chin. Please see pics.

DATE/MARKS: 19th century. Not marked. I know that is a broad time frame, but it is harder to date as it was used throughout the 1800s and is harder to pinpoint an exact decade. But it is NOT a reproduction. It is a true Georgian/Victorian skull charm.

DIMENSIONS: 17 mm tall (1 inch = 25.4 mm) and 11mm wide by back of skull

WEIGHT: Approx. 3.8 grams.
