DATE: Georgian, c.1800

Superb Georgian seal fob pendant dating from the early 19th century, circa 1800. The body is formed as a coiled serpent with typical silly face (most people in England at the time wouldn't have seen a snake with their own eyes...) looping around itself to bite its own body. Crafted in 9 karat rose gold with fluted case around a vivid orange carnelian panel (uncarved).
