Antique Georgian Large Amethyst Spinner Fob Pendant

$2,800

About

A sculptural Georgian Fob abundant with puffy engraved details of grapes and leaves that cover every surface with the exception of the huge 13 Ct amethyst at the center. The amethyst is a medium in tone chosen so as not to overpower the entire design and harmonize as it flows into the lovely gold work. The gem is set in a fine sawtooth frame within the outer frame that displays it as if it were a portrait. On one side the faceted stone has a flat center. Spin it and the other side rises like a mountain. The 9 Kt gold is the strongest gold, stronger than 18 Kt, and was chosen to securely hold the weight of the amethyst and support the swivel design which it has done in top form since c. 1830. Wear this unique jewel on a ribbon close to the neck or at mid chest or on a gold chain. The bale is large and can accommodate your choice on which to suspend this worthy fob. The condition is excellent. The patina is that of antique gold and is unscathed. Height 2 5/8ths, Width 1 5/8ths. Weight 30 grams Note the fob shown on the body is actual size.
