This is a great 9 carat cased gold Victorian watch fob/seal. I love the ones with intaglios, and especially the ones featuring dogs. This one features a Sardonyx which a dog which looks like a Golden Retriever to me, though I can't be certain. What I love is the sentiment engraved on the seal, around the dog. It reads "When this dog barks, my friendship ceases." This piece is in excellent condition, and the gold casing makes it strong enough to press into the sealing wax. I just pressed it into florist's tape, so I could read the intaglio, and it came through clearly with no problem. This piece is 7/8 of an inch long, and 1/4 of an inch wide. at the widest point of the intaglio. It weighs 4.6 grams. It would look lovely on a bracelet, or a watch chain.
