A superb item for your consideration; a chunky antique sterling silver pocket watch chain, with 2 rare encased & enamelled George IV coin fobs (dated 1826 and 1828).
The watch chain is sterling lion stamped to many of the links, others faded out with age; the 'T' bar is stamped with maker F.T, sterling lion and a date letter (no assay office).
There is a typical dog clip attached to the chain which is stamped SS.
Suspended from the watch chain are 2 very interesting Georgian fobs. They are enamelled to the front with a lion stood on top of a crown, with English rose beneath and Irish shamrocks to one side, Scottish thistles to the other. The backs bear the head of King George IV (son and heir to 'Mad' King George; he served from 1811 as Prince Regent during his fathers final mental illness).
The 1826 fob is framed in beaded silver with no glass cover to the front; the back has the original domed glass over the head of the King (small conchoidal fracture to bevelled edge).
The 1828 fob is framed in beaded silver with bevelled glass cover to both sides.
Measurements: watch chain is 13.5" long (including dog clip); Georgian fobs are 0.75" diameter including beading.
