Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1800

Cool Georgian fob wheel pendant dating from the early 19th century. It's furnished with seven hardstone panels, each set with a different hardstone: bloodstone (x2), carnelian, banded agate, rock crystal, chalcedony, and landscape agate. The body can be revolved around the central axis, and the intention was probably to have them intaglio engraved with the seven days of the week - either as words, or as the ancient deities that represent them. Crafted in 9 karat gold throughout, made circa 1800.
