Antique 12KT Gold Watch Fob Key Charm
A lovely 12 karat gold watch fob key with a unique design that is in great antique condition. This watch key still has function but makes a great charm to wear with your favorite necklace. Traditionally these keys were worn with a watch fob so that the person wearing a manual wind up wrist watch could always have the key at hand to keep perfect time. The style of this key is architectural, with several stacked forms from a sphere to a truncated pyramid, this key is really superb! It is punctuated with some leaf motifs and other organic details. The key has two places for a bale so it can be worn with the key hanging horizontally or from the top. The key dates to the architectural revival period of the turn of the century, circa 1900. It measures approximately 2 inches and hangs nicely with a long chain. Weighs 3.2 grams.
