This antique sterling silver Scottish hardstone spinning fob is a lovely example of Victorian jewellery, once worn on a gents watch chain it is now a handsome pendant that you can adore and wear everyday.
Bearing good clear English hallmarks for 1889 the fobs spinner is set with a slice of red-flecked forest green Bloodstone on one side with the other side boasting a glowing Carnelian in a warm mulled spice hue. The top features a decorative barley sugar twist hinged bracket along with a wide bore silver hanging loop.
The spinning mechanism works perfectly so you can spin away to your heart's content. Gorgeous piece, an absolute classic of the era and a handsome unisex addition to any antique jewellery collection!
