SOLD Victorian Forget-Me-Not Agate Fob Charm Pendant
Wonderful fob pendant from the Victorian period. Classic Victorian styling with a beautiful agate stone at the bottom. The agate has been carved into a forget-me-not flower and would have been given as a love token to the recipient. The gold part of the fob also has a flower motif in the centre and there is stunning etching on the base. I believe there would have been enamel on the flower and the etched base originally. There are only remnants of this left, but this adds to the pieces charm. A wonderful Victorian piece.
