Dating from a time when a key was required to wind up your watch, this is a great antique 9ct yellow gold cased watch key set with a bloodstone to the one side and foiled back paste to the other dating from the early Victorian period. Today hung as a fob from a watch chain, a charm from a bracelet or as a pendant from a necklace. The stones are both in good order and of a great shape please see the pictures. The gold cased is not marked, this means solid real 9ct gold, not plate, over another metal in this case probably brass, some slight wear to the high points. The key spins on the bale ring. Fabulous antique watch key.
Size including bale 3.3 x 1.1 x 0.6 cm or 1.2 x 0.4 x 0.2 inches.
Weight 2.9 grams or 1.8 penny weight.
