Georgian Era "Lover's Eye"-Style Ornament / Wall Hanging

Regular price $75.00

Beautiful and unique ornament/wall hanging in the style of a "Lover's Eye" - a jewelry tradition in the Georgian era that became the height of British fashion. Englishmen and women wore the mini portraits depicting their spouse's eye .. or secret lover's (since the tiny paintings only revealed an eye, their identities could remain secret). The eyes often graced rings, lockets, and more jeweled accessories. A mesmerizing and bizarre fad, with a definite air of mystery (that makes for a unique Valentine's Day gift).
