Fantastic antique Edwardian Art Nouveau mesh pocket watch fob with lion and winged gargoyle griffin serpent, and a big fat bloodstone barrel spinner fob, signed Providence Stock Company. Measures 6-7/8" x 1". Bloodstone fob measures 1" x 1" x 9/16" not including the length of the bail. Yellow gold filled with superb ornate details. Ruby paste glass eyes accent the silver lions head. The gargoyle serpents have such wonderful detail with classic flowing Art Nouveau design. Maker marked "PR ST CO" on the top of the swivel. Completely original with no repairs or alterations. Would make a sensational bracelet by simply adding in a very short length of additional chain links. In excellent condition, the mesh has slight weebling but is completely intact, and the fob overall has been well cared for and shows only the very slightest age appropriate wear. Extremely unique and a real conversation piece. Beyond wonderful!
