An incomplete oval fob seal consisting of a purple glass intaglio and part of the integral hexagonal-section handle, together with a gilded copper-alloy bezel. The intaglio depicts a flaming heart and laurel-wreath on a pedestal inscribed DIMIDIA ANIMA MEA, which is probably intended to be translated as 'Half My Soul'.
The flaming heart signifies love and undying passion. The laurel wreath is a symbol of achievement of one's hopes and dreams. The sombre colour, design and inscription suggest that it is possibly a piece of mourning jewellery.
