Terrific antique swivel fob has a beautiful ornate bail! It would look amazing as a pendant or hung from a watch chain.
The swirled 9K gold bail is a warm yellow gold with a slight rose hue. It attaches to a gold swivel bar containing a stunning amethyst. The large stone is beautifully cut and measures 21 mm. Fob itself measures 1&5/8" x 7/8".
Total weight: 7.5 grams.
The fob dates to 1914 and is fully marked for 9K gold and the Birmingham Assay office, with maker's mark "SBROS," possibly for Charles Thomas & William Samuel Sheldon, trading as Sheldon Brothers, manufacturing jewellers on Vyse Street, Birmingham, from 1905-1916.
Excellent condition, with light antique wear. No damage.
