An antique French silver gilt love token pendant / charm, beautifully modelled as an Ivy leaf decorated in deep green vitreous enamel, which slides up to reveal the hand painted phrase: "Ou je m'attache je meurs" which translates to 'Where I cling I die', Ivy is often used as a symbol of fidelity, strong attachment, and everlasting love, 'without you, i can not survive'.
A beautiful & rather unusual sentimental piece...so collectible & ready to wear!
CONDITION: All original and very good. Slight signs of wear & tarnish commensurate with age and use. Small amount of white enamel loss.
