Victorian Gold Fob Seal Pendant Amethyst Carved

I do love a good fob with a beautifully carved intaglio. Usually I find them done in carnelian or bloodstone, sometimes in chalcedony, but I was truly delighted to find this wonderful fob set with a beautifully carved rich purple amethyst.

This late Georgian or early Victorian fob is cased in a 15 karat gold shell with beautifully embossed floral motif, the carved amethyst is set in a silver bezel. The crest carved into the seal is a shield with a griffin on top and three mythic creatures below. This wonderful seal can be worn as a pendant or used on a watch chain, it measures 34 mm high and the bottom measures 29.8 x 17.2 mm, it weighs 14.9 grams. This fob pendant is unmarked and has been acid tested to verify the metal content.
