Overview:

Lovely antique Victorian fob (circa 1880s to 1900s) crafted in 9 karat rose gold.

The beautifully detailed English hallmarked antique fob was originally worn by a gentleman with a pocket watch, a stylish addition to any outfit. Today watch fobs are great worn as a pendant on a necklace. The fob is set with carnelian and bloodstone (20mm diameter each) with beautiful hand etched foliate detailing to the mount. The fob spins in 360 degree motion.

The fob is in good condition with patina and light wear evident. We have not cleaned the piece in order to preserve the patina and collector value. Note: small indentation to the exterior of the fob.
