This early Victorian fob does double duty as a watch-winding key and a wax seal fob. The seal is made of bloodstone and features an intaglio of the words "All For The Best" within a garter surrounding the initials "LD" rendered in gothic script. A beautiful and cleverly designed object crafted for utilitarian (at the the time it was made, c. 1840) purposes.
14k gold (tests), bloodstone, new 14k gold chain
1" length including the bale, 18" chain
1837 — 1901
