A beautiful antique Victorian repousse watch fob with seed pearls. It is made of gold filled metal and is “puffy”. The seed pearls are natural and not cultured pearls. Cultured pearls came into existence at least 20 years after this fob was made.
The lovely, elaborate design is typical of the Victorian Era, with its curled plumes and scrolls. The design is the same on both sides.
The fob measures 13/16 of an inch tall by 11/16 of an inch at the widest point. It is 3/16 of an inch at the deepest point, which is the center of the tiny button pearls.
There are no marks, it was carefully tested.
Estimated to date from the 1880s, this Victorian repousse watch fob with seed pearls will be enjoyed for many decades to come.
