19th Century “Whistle O’Er The Lave O’T” Scottish Intaglio Wax Seal, Crystal, $85
I wasn’t familiar with the motto in this intaglio— it’s the refrain from a comic 18th century Robert Burns poem/song. From my understanding, it translates to “whistle over the rest of it,” a Scots idiom, that in the case of the poem, is a sort of coping strategy for a disappointing marriage.
