Antique 12ct Gold Fob Wax Seal Stamp With Carved Carnelian, Victorian Era
Antique 12ct Gold Fob Wax Seal Stamp With Carved Carnelian. The fob wax seal has a carved carnelian seal. The seal depicts a well and what looks to be either a writing tool or a musical instrument. The wax seal dates sometime around 1860. It has a floral design on the body of the wax seal and a large plain jump ring on the top. The jump ring and the wax seal were acid tested as there are no hallmarks. The jump ring is 10ct gold and the wax seal is 12ct gold. The wax seal would have originated from England. The reason why there are no hallmarks is because the hallmarks would have been on the original jump ring. Which most likely, would have been soldered shut. The jump ring that is on the fob now looks to be a replacement, possibly would have been replaced earlier in the 20th century around 1910. As to why the jump ring was replaced? The wax seal is made from genuine carnelian.
In almost perfect condition, excluding some fine scratching on the gold. It looks as if it has been sitting in a draw and was rarely used. Please view the pictures for more infomation.
