Regular price £275.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
A gorgeous antique, 19th century gold seal fob.

Rounded base with the top designed as a cross or crucifix in 9ct yellow gold, the piece is engraved throughout with fine detailing.

This little seal fob is a most interesting piece, it was once a Stanhope piece, one tiny lense can still be seen, the other side has been covered at a later point, possibly due to it being damaged at some point but the actual reason is a mystery, soft solder can be seen on the covered end.

It has a small jump ring attached for hanging from a watch chain or a necklace.

The base of the seal is set with sardonyx, deep orangey red with a white covering, un-carved matrix so could be personalised.

A charming piece rich in mystery and beauty.

Unmarked, tests as 9ct gold.

Condition:
Good used condition overall, signs of use and wear commensurate with age, soft solder to one end of the cross and Stanhope closed up.

Approx measurements:
0.75" height
0.5" width at the base

Weighs approx 1.79 gram
