RARE GEORGIAN 18CT GOLD WHITE STONE SET MOUNTED FOB SEAL. This is a Georgian 14ct Gold White Stone Mounted fob seal, this wonderful Georgian Fob Seal dates to circa 1790 making it 228 years old, the body of the fob seal is crafted in 14ct gold and has such wonderful elegant and timeless look with its classic bell shape handle with entwined scrolls and foliage finishing at the top into a loop, this is set with a lovely belleved edge cut white stone, it has the engraved intials J F, this is then framed with a beautiful 14ct gold banded border, the loop to the top has wonderful cast foliage decoration and opens to allow you to attach or remove the fob seal, the detailing is very elegant as you would expect in the Georgian period, this i believe would have once belonged to a wealthy Gentleman of the 18th century and hung from his watch chain and been used daily to seal his letter making it secure and also when delivered the recipient would know who the sender was by the wording on the seal itself, this was in a time when letter writing was very important and sent daily, this is so very tactile and once held it has the most wonderful feel. This will add something very special to any collection, my photos dont do it justice.
Please study the photos as this is an extremely rare fob seal, there is a very tiny hallmark near the top but hard to make out, so this has been tested and is 14ct gold, the loop to the top is also 14ct gold. 2 cm height not including the loop... Including the loop to the top it is 3.5 cm...
