Georgian Snake & Amethyst Spinner Seal Fob


A Georgian carved amethyst swivel seal fob with three intaglios: the initials "FFW" in gothic script; Philippians 1 Ch V 3 ("I thank my God in all my remembrance of you"); and a remarkable bust of a nude woman with her hand and arm demurely raised to cover her bare breasts. Best of all, the gold mounting is rendered in the shape of a pair of snakes whose tails coil together to form the bale.
