This Georgian 9ct Gold Agate intaglio swivel fob pendant is an exceptionally rare piece of antique jewellery. Beautifully engraved with the portrait of Galileo, this swivel fob will sit flat against your neckline allowing its beauty to radiate outwards.

In our opinion, there is nothing quite like a beautiful antique fob! This fob in particular has a graceful symmetrical column and the back of the Agate hard stone is so satisfyingly smooth. This swivel fob is impressive, not only for its looks but also its history, sure to be 
a welcome addition to your antique jewellery collection.

Condition

EXCELLENT: This Georgian 9ct Gold Agate intaglio swivel fob pendant is in superb condition throughout. The portrait is very crisp, with no scratches or chips, and it's secure in its setting. A note to the wearer, at the bottom of the fob there is a tiny gap in the Gold, but this was when the Gold is joined together in the setting and is not wear or damage. The swivel mechanism also has fab tension, so you can twist and turn this piece to your heart's delight!
