Antique gilt intaglio seal. This mid 19th century seal is set with a white paste in a cushion shape. The bottom is engraved For Auld Lang Syne with a hand holding a beer stein. The song, used to bid farewell to the old year as well as at other occasions such as funerals, is a sentimental that just makes me well up. It's a wonderful, poetic and touching song. The top of this fob is domed in shape with studs around the edges and a flared shell shaped handle. Circa mid 19th century.
Measures approx 2.45 cm / 0.97 inches tall and the bottom is 14.95 mm by 13.05 mm.
