Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1870

A cool antique gold anchor pendant with a working (!!) compass centrepiece. It dates from the mid-Victorian era, circa 1870, and remains in great condition. The needle moves freely, and hones in on North when held flat on the palm, and to the reverse is an uncarved round sardonyx panel. It's charged with romantic symbolism: the anchor for hope, while the compass will guide you back to your loved one's heart.
