What an amazing piece this one is. I have never seen a watch Fob/seal like this one. There are six panels, all covered with glass, with lockets of hair inside. This makes up the side of the Fob. This piece is 15 ct gold, unmarked but tested, and the seal is an amethyst, confirmed with a gem tester.There are two initials in the center which appear to be PO, and it is obviously a family name. Then, around the initials on the amethyst, are the words "Remember Auld lang syne," or loosely translated from the Scottish, "Remember the Good Old Times. Around each panel with hair are initials, and they are "AGO," "MO," "DAO," "MFO," "GAO," and "EMO." What a one of a kind piece. The fob measures 1 and 1/2 inches tall, and the seal itself measures 5/8 of an inch across. The piece weighs 7.5 grams. I think this is a sentimental piece rather than a mourning one. It was probably a Father's watchfob, with hair of his children and wife.
