ANTIQUE VICTORIAN FOB GREYHOUND DOG 14K GOLD AQUAMARINE - For Sale

ANTIQUE VICTORIAN FOB GREYHOUND DOG 14K GOLD AQUAMARINE
Price: $1000.00
Antique, Victorian watch fob in the form of a 14carat gold dog sitting on a large gem cushion. Made 1840-80. ??? Approx length is 1 1/4 inches. Weighs 14.4grams. Base is set on a large, oval gemstone. Technically an aquamarine, but colour in natural light looks quite clear (not blue) and clearly has a number of flaws. Colette set with the top of the base having a naturalistic surface with scattered flowers. A fantastically modelled greyhound dog; he twists slightly off center in his glance. He wears a collar with links for holding a chain. The posture is perfect for depicting the superb sculpture - exquisitely fine detail showing muscles and skeleton below it, arched bridge of his nose, skinny, muscular legs typical of wind breeds and the fastest of canines. The only flaw is a tiny hole, shown magnified very largely in the pictures, but that does not detract at all in reality and is commensurate with an item of this age and delicate material. Good condition. Status: For Sale Reference#: 4234 Condition: good Year: 1820 Title: ANTIQUE VICTORIAN FOB GREYHOUND DOG 14K GOLD AQUAMARINE
