Fantastic quality to this antique 15ct yellow gold pendant, fob or even charm, with a charming butterfly detail, dating from the early Victorian period with an intaglio seal of a horse to the base. Traditionally these would be hung from a watch chain as a fob, but today as watch chains are not in everyday use it could be hung as a pendant from a necklace or from a bracelet as a charm.
The gold has been tested as there are no gold marks. To the top of the fob is an unusual butterfly detail. The seal is black onyx with an intaglio horse, the seal has 2 tiny edge nibbles, not visible to the naked eye so in my opinion does not detract, fantastic detailing please see the pictures.
