Rare French 'Pense A Moi' Two Way Swivel Plaque Ring Circa 1820

A rare and unusual French Enamel 'Pense A Moi' Plaque ring that swivels in two directions. Made from 18 carat gold it is enamelled to one side with a pansy mosaic and the words A MOI - 
The word Pansy translates from the French word pensée "thought", and was imported into Late Middle English as a name of viola in the mid-15th century, as the flower was regarded as a symbol of remembrance = 'think of me'

The other side is set with a crystal vitrine (window) behind which is another pansy, this time crafted from the beloved's hair.

The plaque is set within a bezel that swivels north/south but inside that frame is an inner plaque that swivels east/west rather like an Armillary Sphere.

gold - tests as 18 carat. 

condition- very good. All enamel and glass in good order
