Antique Georgian Black Agate Fob with Engraved Portrait
This elegant 12 karat gold watch fob with an engraved portrait dates to the late Georgian era. Traditionally the watch fob accessory was a sign of elegance among gentlemen; this accessory would attach to the pocket watch and be a stylish addition of personal taste. This fob has an engraving on the face of the black agate stone, which would be used as a seal for letters. The engraved portrait of a man has some nice detail in profile, including hair and ears. The style of the bale dates this piece to the early 19th century; the repeating crosshatch patterns on the gold are slightly worn, but the soft polish that results from the wear of this piece gives it a nice touch The upper ring of the bale has some minor denting, but this does not detract from the beauty of this piece. Today, this watch fob would make a perfect charm or pendant to add to a necklace. The fob from top to bottom measures 3/4 of an inch; the black agate stone measures 1/2 x 3/8 of an inch. This fob is a very beautiful detail item with many possibilities. It makes a great gift for someone who loves antique jewelry and is looking for something unique.
