Victorian 9ct Gold Watch Key with Locket Compartment, Large Antique Hard Stone Fob Swivelling Fob Pendant, Circa 1870s Registration Mark.Add to Wishlist
Victorian 9ct gold pendant with a couple of surprises! This large pendant, probably originally designed as a watch fob, is set with a different coloured hard stone on each side. One is a red and green bloodstone and the other side is a deeper red stone. This piece swivels down to revel a watch key. But the fun doesn't stop there! The bloodstone side opens to revel a locket compartment. At the moment the photograph inside is a black and white photograph of male, probably circa 1960s. The fob is stamped with a British diamond registration mark. Because it's stamped on a curve it is somewhat difficult to make out. We believe that it's for October 1879.
Not hallmarked, tested and assessed as 9 carat gold.
