DOVES OF PLINY Vintage Seal Necklace - SILVER
The sweetest little intaglio watch fob seal depicts an ancient scene of doves gathered on a drinking vessel by Sosus of Pergamon, a Greek mosaic artist of the second century BC. The original mosaic is known only through ancient literature and by a copy installed at Hadrian's Villa from the 2nd century AD which was described by Pliny. A tiny piece of history that connects us to the ancients.
