Victorian 9K Gold-Cased Fob with Glass
This is a darling watch fob from the Victorian era. It is made of two pieces of metal with ornate foliage forms cased in gold; you can see the craftsmanship on this piece and where they are joined. The fob is cased in 9kt gold and has a lovely oval shaped piece of glass at the bottom. The glass resembles a citrine and has an auburn hue. Although this piece is unmarked I have tested it as 9kt gold. The fob stands approximately 1/2 an inch tall. The base of the fob is approximately 10.45 mm in width.This piece weighs approximately 1.82 grams. The bale would accommodate up to a 2.70 mm chain. This antique watch fob makes a fashionable pendant—ready to hang on the chain of your choice!
