Antique Carnelian Lion and Crown Watch Fob Pendant in 15k Gold

His guests were gathered around him in the library, listening to his addicting stories, tales full of wonder. He would tell of long dry African safaris and escaping lionesses. He would tell of riding energetic elephants in the rain in Thailand. She was small enough to hide behind the settee, so she could watch her father speak. She could survey the crowd as they gasped and ooh-ed and ahh-ed. When her father would leave on his long business trips, he would write to her. She would check the mail every morning, looking for the envelope with her name, closed with a giant wax seal made by a carnelian fob, with stories of adventures inside.  

This antique Victorian intaglio watch fob was handcrafted in 15 karat gold. It was made in England, circa 1850. The beautiful carnelian seal is beautifully carved with a roaring lion rampant climbing out of a crown which resembles a castle, all the while, the lion is holding a fleur-de-lis. The bright red carnelian measures 16.5 x 14 mm. It weighs 5.1 grams and measures 19 x 16.5 x 22.5 mm. 

This breathtaking watch fob is a fabulous conversation piece. It could be the next item in your jewelry box. It is a great size to wear on either a chain or a bracelet.
