This is a very interesting item which is mid-Victorian or earlier. It is a silver-gilt basket adorned with turquoise and garnets, and it is also a seal which could be used as a fob, or a table seal. The intaglio is a cornelian with initials. I think they are "L A, or J A;" I can't be sure. There is a mythological figure atop the circle with the initials which is a half-man figure. As you can see in the photo, the seal goes uphill on oneside, though it is flat at the bottom. It doesn't look bent to me, so this may have been intentional, or it could have been bent from years of pressing. It doesn't detract from the piece. I would wear it on a chain, but it could be kept on a small desk. It is two inches tall, and 6/8 inches across the top.
