From the collection of an enthusiast, a gorgeous decorative antique Regency era fob watch key. Dating to around the 1820's, an unusual heart shaped design with panels to each side; one showing a Heliotrope (or Bloodstone) and the other a fabulous foiled heart shaped Citrine glass 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 3cm in length. Please inspect our photographs, as there is are tiny scratches and scuffs to the surface of the gems, but only commensurate with wear given two centuries of life.
