This Georgian seal fob was hand fashioned around 1830 in the territories of the United Kingdom.
It is made of metal cased in 12 carat gold ( tested ) - casing is a thick skin of gold applied to the metal shape. In this instance, the typical of the period carved floral decoration is applied into the gold layer. The chalcedony set into the seal features a fine carving of a sheet of wheat, St Andrew's cross and a motto in Latin "Dominus Providebit" which is "God will provide" , suggesting owners Scottish and agricultural connections.
This interesting seal fob is in good antique condition. The chalcedony carving still has traces of white and red seal wax which we left in place for extra sentimental interest :) It adds to the charm of the piece. it measures 1.2 by 0.81 inches and weighs 13.4 grams.
We love ....... how gorgeous this chunky fob looks suspended from a chain. It is a very tactile piece of jewellery, a wonderful old piece of history that you can enjoy without being too precious about it. It is solid and weighty and would look great in a company of other fobs too. We love the look.....
