Intaglio Flower Motto Citrine Seal 9k Gold Pendant Fob Antique Victorian c1850.
' Il faut me cher cher ' translate as ' I must be dear to me ' or 'you must look for me'
Charming intaglio flower, possibly a forget me not, to this citrine seal surrounded by a motto in french set in a 9ct yellow gold pendant fob dating from the early Victorian period. It is of a great size & would look fab attached to a watch chain, or a charm bracelet or even used as a pendant from a chain necklace.
The gold has been tested as there are no gold marks. The seal tests as a real citrine, it is of a great colour but has rounding wear to the edges see pictures. The flower of the intaglio is crisp but the some of the motto letters are slightly blurred, or it could be my eyes, please see the pictures, however personally I think still charming.
