Trust Badge

A fine antique 9ct Gold cased Carnelian fob pendant from the Victorian era, circa 1850, with a beautiful stately horse.

This antique fob pendant is quality piece crafted with a fine eye for detail. The horse is stood on a plinth of smooth, deep orange Carnelian (or Cornelian) and if you look closely you'll see a gorgeous mane, tail, the details of the hooves, the nose... even eyes.

Today the fob can be worn as a charm or a pendant, on a necklace or on your favourite chunky Gold bracelet. You could also attach it to an old Albert chain or muff chain and drape it around the neck.

A rare and collectible piece of history that's just as beautiful and just as versatile as it ever was. A great gift for any occasion, or a treat just because you love it so!

This magnificent equestrian antique fob pendant is a rare and unusual find and is offered in excellent good antique condition.

The fine detail in the horse's design can still be seen clearly, and the Gold casing is completely intact, so you can wear this pendant with pride for many decades to come - to the envy of all your friends!
