|The reverse side of the Love Tokens, with|
the makers name, Charles Jones.
These ‘Love Tokens’ were made in Birmingham in bronze and gold gilt in the 1830s by Charles Jones of the Pantechnetheca (a grand toy-shop/repository); these are gold gilt examples of the whole set of six. Each token depicts two cupids rolling dice on the reverse [above], and a different scene (again, each with Cupid) on the obverse, as follows:
|'AMOR FURIOSO', or, Furious Love|
|'AMOR VILE', or, Vile Love|
|'AMOR POETICO', or, Poetic Love|
|'AMOR NOBILE', or, Noble Love|
|'AMOR LENTO', or, Slow Love|
|'AMOR VOLUBILE', or, Changeable Love|
These would have been made as collectable items, and Birmingham produced a vast range.
