This Victorian Gold cased Chalecdony intaglio fob is certainly a handsome piece! Inlaid with a milky white Chalcedony, this fob has the words "Follow Me" and a Wolf face, perhaps an allusion to the Red Riding Hood fairytale!
An ornate and plump design, this fob would be a gorgeous statement pendant to have within your collection. The Gold case has retained its signature saturation and hue, so you can match this to a Gold chain perfectly.

VERY GOOD-GOOD: This Victorian Gold cased Chalcedony intaglio fob is in great antique condition. The Chalcedony is snug in its settings with the intricate details crisp and only one tiny flea bite to its centre. The Gold casing is wholly intact, but there is also some general wear especially around the corners of the fob. That being said this piece is robust and Gold casing is known for its thickness, so you can be reassured that this piece will bring you pleasure for many more years.
