A beautiful Georgian intaglio wax seal fob, it has an elaborate design with delicate floral detailing and bold scrolling.
The matrix is made from carnelian and is very finely carved with a male portrait with romanesque features.
The metal is gilded bronze and it has a lovely aged patina to it.
Would have been attached to a necklace, albertina or an Albert chain and would make a beautiful pendant, perfect for layering with other necklaces and pendants.
It is quite a large and weighty seal fob.
Good used condition overall, some wear to the gilding, some wax remnants around the matrix.
Approx 1.2" height and 1" width.
