An ode to The Bard in the form of an exquisite late 18th century sepia pendant. Though William Shakespeare died long before this piece was made, his renown as a dramatist and writer is legendary and his work has held lovers of the theater and written word in thrall for more than four centuries. The miniature depicts a young woman laying flowers at his grave within a blue enamel border with diamonds forming a bow and wreath. A rare treasure.
