A fancy 15 karat yellow gold ornate scroll seal fob with a’ blind’ white faceted quartz base. This is a design that was prominent in the Georgian period but also was most likely manufactured during the Victorian era. With a large bale at the top of the seal, the design is florid, some of the detail displaying flower and leaf shapes. An antique piece that would have been used for sealing wax purposes if it would have had the intaglio incised into the chalcedony base. This can now be used as quirky pendant accessory or used as an Albert chain fob. 

 

Upon request we can have the quartz carved with monograms, family crests or other motifs. Please contact us for more details.
