Pinchbeck was often used in place of Gold during the 18th century by people who frequently travelled. The highways were often littered with thieves and robbers so if the jewellery was stolen it would be of lower value and it would deter their wagons from being ambushed. One can only imagine the adventures this antique fob pendant has experienced, what adventures will it accompany you on?
The letters "S S" are engraved into the smooth cloudy surface of the Chalcedony.

EXCELLENT: This Georgian wax seal fob pendant is offered in magnificent antique condition, so much so it's hard to believe it was handcrafted almost two centuries ago! The Chalcedony is smooth with no chips or cracks or any signs of wear at all. The pinchbeck is outstanding and the patterns are deep and vivid. There is ever so slight wear to one side of the fob, but this is only noticeable on very close inspection and in no way distracts the eye from this stunning piece of antique jewellery! A wonderful gift or special treat for yourself.
