Antique Victorian Selenite Stanhope Barrel Watch Fob Charm Souvenir of Niagara Falls
Look through this tiny carved barrel fob or charm, and you will see seven images of Niagara Falls arranged in a collage. The white material with a fibery look is actually a natural stone called Selenite. The images are engraved in a tiny orb, then nestled at one of the openings. When you look through it, you see an enlarged image. It’s an amazing tiny treasure and a sure conversation piece.
This antique Victorian selenite stanhope barrel watch fob charm or pendant measures 3/4″ tall, including the bail, by a bit over 1/2″ wide. All the metal is gold-filled. The condition is excellent – it is 120 years old.
