From the collection of an enthusiast, a gorgeous decorative antique Regency era fob watch key. Dating to around the 1820's, an unusual shield shaped design with panels to each side; one showing a milky Chalcedony and the other a fabulous foiled Rock Crystal all within a florid Rococo style framing. This would once have belonged to a dandy about town, as the wearing of fobs and watch keys was very trendy, and we feel it could make an original and interesting pendant.
Over a steel base for strength this piece is 9ct Gold cased and measures just shot of 4cm in length. Please inspect our photographs, as there is a scratch and scuffs to the surface of the Rock Crystal, but only commensurate with wear given it's two centuries of life.
