This Georgian steel wax seal fob is a rare and handsome beauty! Deeply engraved with a fox and a beautifully emblazoned shield intaglio, this one-of-a-kind fob is a must for any Georgian jewellery collection.
The fox is shown "rampant", he is walking upright with his right paw raised, which gives him an edge that we absolutely love. In historic Georgian heraldry the fox symbolises one who will use all his shrewdness, sagacity, wit or wisdom for his own defence. So perhaps, when you wear this fob as a pendant, you might find that you can win any disagreement! If you would like us to add a complimentary oxidised silver chain to wear with it please make a note on your order.

MEASUREMENTS: the fob measures 1-1/8" (3cm) tall and the intaglio is 1" (2.5cm) by 7/8" (2.2cm)

CONDITION: this Georgian steel wax seal fob is in fabulous condition. The intaglio is completely crisp, with no signs of wear and the entirety of the fob is sturdy.
