What a marvellously large Victorian fob pendant we've had the pleasure of perusing with a wonderful man's portrait intaglio engraving on the fob seal!
The sheer size of this fob is absolutely fantastic with its glorious ornate metal body making for a lovely feature indeed.
The glass fob has been foiled to accentuate extra gemstone like features underneath which has been engraved on top with a portrait which would have been the owners stamped signature closing envelopes with wax... very cool!
ERA: Early Victorian c.1840
MEASUREMENTS: The fob is 35mm long.
The fob seal is 28mm x 23mm.
MATERIALS: Metal, Foiled Glass.
HALLMARKS: None present.
GOOD: This large Victorian fob pendant is in a fine state after it's many years of use. The metal framework is clear and precise still holding on to its ornate features. The fob seal bottom has small fleabites from use over the years which adds its lovely antique charm. The foiled glass does show a small area of use on the inside which just shows it's been loved. You can add your favourite chain and wear this fob pendant straight away if you so desire!
