Made in the early Victorian era, this 9ct Gold antique fob seal pendant would have originally been used as a wax seal signature!
The design is one of our favourites we've had the pleasure of viewing so far, complete with its own unique quirks and intricacies...
If you look closely you#ll see there is a small Fawn (yes it has hairy legs and all!) playing the flute, and he's sat on a shell covered rock. We just love its fairytale features!
The Citrine is a beautiful pale honey tone and has been foiled and faceted for extra sparkle and pizazz. Gothic typeface initials are engraved in the Citrine which is a lovely personal historical touch!
The Citrine bottom is engraved with the initials "R.L.M" or "R.Y.M". (As it is in a gothic font the swirly typeface is slightly difficult to read but they are still very clear and a wonderful testament to its previous caretaker).
ERA: Victorian (1837-1901)
MEASUREMENTS: The fob length is 30mm.
The square fob seal bottom is 16mm x 14mm.

EXCELLENT: This 9ct Gold antique fob seal pendant is in excellent condition. The 9ct Gold casing has lasted very well indeed, not showing signs of wear from its old age which is wonderful. The Citrine itself is in excellent condition; bright and full of life. The bolt ring is in great working order, strong and durable enough to add a chain and wear straight away!
