A wonderful pun on the loss of a loved one. The widow is gazing sadly at a broken column while an angel hovers overhead with a banner that reads “I Have lost my support” It is beautifully executed with fine gold wire and tiny natural pearls on a coloured background. On the reverse is a locket section with hair within.
