Victorian Intaglio Armorial Fob Pendant Seal

His tie was striped with shades of crimson; his tailored suit was handsome and charcoal. Her confidence was hardly ever startled. And yet, this man, whom she’d never met, asked her the time because, as he said, his pocket watch had stopped. And all she could do was giggle. He tucked his watch with accompanying fobs in his pocket, still wondering the time. She pulled out her phone and showed him the clock, without saying an actual word. He thanked her, as a gentleman would, and handed her his business card, with his number on the back. And again, all she could do was giggle.

This antique Victorian intaglio fob seal pendant was handcrafted in England around 1850. It features a carved oval carnelian set in 18 karat gold that has been acid tested. This fob measures 31 x 22.5 x 27.3 mm and it weighs 11.7 grams. The carnelian is carved with a highly detailed motif including a coat of arms with flowers, a wyvern, the sun, and the Latin phrase, “ALTIUS TENDO”, meaning “I reach higher”. 

This is a large sized pendant, made to hang from a matching chain, to show off and to talk about.
