Georgian Rock Crystal "L'Amour" Spinner Fob

Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1800

This cool antique spinner fob is set with a rotating carved rock crystal stone. The crystal is shaped with three large facets: one with an intaglio portrait of the Greek philosopher Socrates; on with a double heart and arrows motif under the word "L'AMOUR" (French for Love); and one remains blank. Perhaps a reference to the symposium - a philosophical text that deals with the nature of love. The fittings are modelled in 9k rose gold, patterned with a pretty wheat sheaf design.
