Description

DATE: Early Victorian, c.1840

A fine quality antique seal fob, the black hardstone agate is carved as a blackamoor head with Turkish-style tassel hat and a bushy moustache and beard. The carving is exceptionally well executed, and the gold fittings at the bottom are home to a chalcedony seal panel intaglio carved with the name Joh Blümel. Most likely if German origin, it was made in the mid-19th Century at the very beginning of the Victorian era.
