Lovely heavy Victorian watch fob. Solid construction in this classic round design studded with a paste (glass) diamond. This piece is special as it has a loop and a clasp at the top that test for 10kt gold where the fob itself is only gold filled. The handmade jump ring on the top moves to open with an early spring clasp. There is a notch to rest the thumb when holding so it opens easy. This type of custom clasp was starting to be produced in the late 1800's. Good vintage condition with small signs of normal wear. The post stone has some greying in the color. Etching design is like a starburst. Small dent on the bottom of the fob.
Fob measures 1 and 1/4 of an inch in diameter with 1/2 of an inch for the bail and clasp.
