This is a very beautiful and rare key/seal. The stone is a well detailed carnelian intaglio of a bull. It hinges out to allow the stone to rotate and be used as a seal as well as a fob key. It has a hinged hidden hook, so cleverly designed to make this a dual functional piece of jewelry.
It is 9 karat gold and in superb/mint condition.
It measures 3 inches long X 1 inch across.
Beautiful with a chain or cord. So relevant in today's fashion world. Designers are replicating antique keys as the fashion is so relevant today.
Circa 1800 England
