Georgian, c.1750

An original 18th Century porcelain Derby Chelsea period fob seal. This particular piece features a lion, and displays the pale colouring typical of the Chelsea factory.

From Bryant's The Chelsea Porcelian Toys (1925) p.140 - "Seal in the form of a lion lying on a green mound, the rim of the base is gilded, concave underneath."

WEIGHT 3.8g

MARKS No marks present

CONDITION Slight damage to the rim, consistent with the age of the piece. Overall condition is very good.
