Antique Georgian Rare Jane Austen Family Silver Armorial Fob, circa 1760

About

I must say "a rare find", an armorial seal fob in silver neoclassical form, made for distant cousins of the writer Jane Austen c. 1760 only 15 years before Jane Austen was born. The family lived in Boxley Abbey and Hall Place. It is hand engraved showing arms that were granted to the First Baronet, Robert Austen who was born in c.1580 and died in 1666.Robert Austen became a Baronet in July 1660 and was Sheriff of Kent until 1661. The engraved coat of arms show an oval shield with a chevron depicting a sword or gules separating three lion's paws. As titles passed from father to son and thus title passed to Robert Austen 7th for whom this fob was made. He lived c.1708-1772. The fob is hallmarked twice. Condition Strong, Crisp and Excellent with normal wear for use and age. Height: 1 inch Width 7/8ths of an inch.
