$1,241.00

Overview:

Finely detailed antique Victorian compass fob crafted in 9k rose gold (circa 1897).

Originally the compass would have been worn alongside a pocket watch. The ships wheel was a popular nautical motif during the Victorian to Edwardian eras. The fob is great worn alone as a statement piece or worn as a charm on a necklace or bracelet.

The fob is in good condition with wear evident to the clear face housing the compass (light surface abrasions visible) and a few dings to the gold. We have not cleaned it in order to preserve the patina and collector value.
