Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1810

A great Georgian tassie seal fob dating from the early 19th Century, circa 1810. The glass seal is a bright turquoise colour, intaglio carved with the words GOOD NIGHT and hand snuffing out a candle. The fob body is crafted in 9 karat yellow gold, and is beautifully adorned with scrolled and foliate motifs. It's clearly taken a knock at some point so, rather charmingly, it lilts to one side when stood up on the base.
