SOLD. Sorry, this item has sold.

Antique carnelian and 9 carat gold fob dating to the Victorian era. A large oval cut reddish orange carnelian intaglio is carved with a single rose flower blossom. Above the rose reads L AMOUR. The French word l'amour translates to love making this a beautiful little statement, a rose given in love. Circa mid 19th century.

In very good condition. Stylistically this seal is Georgian but 9 carat gold wasn't introduced until 1854 and the Georgian era ended in 1837. This piece is circa early Victorian, mid 1850s - 1860s.

Not marked, professionally tested and assessed as 9 carat gold which is peachy colour like most antique British gold, a colour between modern yellow and modern rose gold.

Measures approx 24.45 cm / 1 inches tall by 20.2 cm / 0.80 inches by 16.6 cm / 0.65 inches across the base.

Weighs 5.5 grams.

Listing is for l'amour fob only, other chains and pendants shown are available separately.
