Victorian Gold Carnelian Woman with Wheat Fob Pendant

There is a story of a man in England who writes letters with a feather quill, who scribbles his words in loopy cursive letters, and who, when he pauses, places his finger to his chin to ponder. His spectacles are round and silver and magnify his blue eyes beneath the lenses. His hair is dark brown, like baking chocolate, and there are strands of gray on the edges of his face. He carefully places his parchment inside a corresponding envelope and when he closes it, he presses this seal into some melted crimson wax.

This Victorian fob seal was handcrafted in England around 1850. It’s an antique fob crafted in 9 karat gold with a red carnelian intaglio set into it. The oval seal features the image of a woman holding a sheaf of wheat, a symbol of prosperity. This piece measures 24 mm in height, 17.2 mm in width, and 23.3 mm in depth. It weighs 5.1 grams and has been acid tested.

Imagine clandestine meetings and secrets in letters all tied together with a seal. It could be this fob that helps guard your words and correspondents. It would also make a fantastic bauble on a gold chain.
