Circa 1820's and richly decorated with the florid embellishment typical of the era, depicting Acanthus leaves and scrollwork, this antique watch key would have been a prized accessory often worn at the waist on a watch chain. It would now make an unusual and curious pendant as keys have such a plethora of symbolism.
It is gold cased, that is most wonderfully wrapped in 15ct yellow gold over a Pinchbeck and steel core. Measures 4cm in length.
