For auld Lang syne
This pendant was cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come in a huge variety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...
This seal features the of a arm raised in a toast, with a tankard in the hand. It states 'for auld lang syne'. Auld Lang Syne is a poem written by the Scottish poet Robert Burns in 1788. The Scottish title can be translated into standard English as For ( the sake of) old times. It is well known in many countries, especially in the English-speaking world, its traditional use being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight. By extension, it is also sung at funerals, graduations and as a farewell or ending to other occasions.
The international Boy Scout youth movement, in many countries, uses it to close jamborees and other functions. (wikipedia)
Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
and never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
and fully past and gone:
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
that loving Breast of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect
On old long syne.
On old lang syne my Love,
On old lang syne,
That thou canst never once reflect,
On old lang syne.
