Victorian Gold Carnelian Armorial Seal Fob Pendant 9k Gold
He liked the snow in February, when most were tired of trudging through it. He thrived on sitting at his desk, working on his manuscripts, as the grayness outside seemed to glow. After every chapter, he wrote his editor a letter, and stamped the envelope closed with crimson wax, leaving the impression of his families coat of arms with an intaglio that had been his father’s and his fathers father’s before that. This evening, he lit the fire and wrote late into the morning hours. He only went to bed after his dog came to find him for a late night walk in the swirling flakes.
This antique carnelian fob seal was made around 1870 in England. The seal of a family crest is carved into an oval of carnelian which measures 25x20 mm, the overall fob is hand crafted in 9 karat gold and measures 29.2 mm high and 27x22 mm at the face. This fob is on the larger side, it weighs 8.2 grams. It is unmarked but we’ve carefully acid tested.
I adore these historic fobs, they’re a tiny bit mysterious, and a lot of style. This conversation started would wear well on a gold watch chain or really any chain at all.
