This watch fob is a truly stunning and unique example of the world of styles that pervades antique jewelry.
As you can see, the fob is wonderfully unusual.
It is cubed shaped with nine silver-toned knobs on each side.
The cube itself is rendered in a richly patinated gold-tone metal which complements the highly reflective silver color beautifully.
The cube-shaped fob dangles from an elegant twisted chain which features a lustrous 12 karat yellow gold-plated finish.
The classic watch-clasp at the end of the chain also bears nicely oxidized 12 karat gold-plate.
The piece has been professionally tested to ensure the purity of the gold.
You will notice that the fob shows some darkening, though we think this really brings out the dimension and depth.
There are some very tiny spots of verdigris at the end of the twisted chain while the watch-clasp shows some darkening a few dark spots.
However, this incredibly rare and unusual fob remains in good antique condition.
This is the kind of piece that's as collectible as it is wearable. We think the cube-shaped fob would make a fabulously unique pendant.
Total length is 5", Cube-shaped fob is 1/2" long, 1/2" wide and 1/2" deep
