Offered for sale, a most unusual late Victorian fob pendant, circa 1890's.
The fob has a sterling silver frame and glass covers front and back, with the typical Victorian beaded trim. Inside the glass casing is an engraved gilt/gold metal figure of a man on a bicycle.
The silver case is hallmarked but some of it has been obscured by the beading; I can see the sterling lion and the Birmingham anchor, maker and date letter are partially obscured. Can safely be dated to the late 1800's; I do have a masonic compasses version of this pendant which is clearly dated 1897.
In good antique condition; original bevelled glass has surface wear to both sides, some wear to silver frame; all commensurate with age & having been used.
Measurements: pendant is 3.6cm by 2.5cm (including jump ring), with a 6mm depth.
Please view all photographs provided, which can be supersized for full, clear detail of item on offer and its condition (for reference: the main AIP image shows a net background through the glass that the pendant was sat on top of; please note in life it is transparent glass with only the bicycle inside).
Fantastic piece for wear as a pendant or addition to a Victorian watch chain.
