This little gem of a watch fob features a tested 9 carat gold mounting with a heavily chased top and an intaglio of a Roman figure carved in an onyx stone. Since there is little contrast in the black stone it was difficult to photograph this piece. In my last image I have over lightened the piece so that you could get somewhat of an idea of the carving. It's a classic design, seen in many other styles of antique jewelry. The onyx is highly polished with a slightly beveled edge. Excellent condition and workmanship. Weight is 3.3 grams and measures 7/8" by just under 1/2".
