Antique 1910s 9 CT English hard stone swivel fob pendant

A wonderful early 20th century bloodstone and carnelian watch fob. Fobs were attached to chains and worn in a gentleman’s vest. The toggle end of a fob chain fits into a vest button pocket, with the fob pendant and most likely a pocket watch attached to the end, which slid inside the vest pocket. Men wore these before the advent of wristwatches! Today, fobs are most often worn as pendant accessories, as shown here! The central section is set on a swivel so it can be reversed to show either the bloodstone or the carnelian stone on top. Many fob pendants like these were engraved as intaglios and used as seals The edge of the gold on this one is engraved, ‘W.K. TO A.K.’ – we wonder if it was a gift from father to son! Available with or without the gold fill watch chain pictured!

Measurements: 7/8 inch long, 15.2 grams
Era: 1860s-1890s
