❤ SECRET WINDOW ❤



❤ SECRET WINDOW ❤



The year was 1786. King George IV had the artist Richard Cosway paint the eye of his secret lover , Maria Fitzherbert ; only he and his inamorata knew the secret.

The Lover's Eye became popular during the reign of King George IV when he commissioned an artist to depict a rendering of his secret lover's eye to wear in a locket secretly keeping her identity unknown.

Love, in many cases of marriage was non existent and therefore affairs of the heart were conducted in obscurity and concealment from the public eye. To keep one's love a secret and close to their heart, they wore an affectionate reminder, in this case the eyes of their paramour inside a secret locket.

Clandestine Lover's Eye Love Tokens were all the rage in 18th and 19th century. And why not , they were the perfect secret love keepers. They were virtually impossible to ever give the secret identity of the lover away!

Because of my undying adoration for eyes , spiders, webs, Victorian Gothic Ghostly Tales , EDGAR aLLAN pOE and black I dreamed up this Secret Lover's Eye series ,actually a "Haunted Secret Lovers Eye Collection".
