Sterling Silver Escutcheon shaped gents fob for putting on a watch Albert/chain. As would be worn on the end of a pocket watch chain to weight it in the pocket or to be displayed engraved with a crest near the T-Bar at the front of the waistcoat. It bears the Makers mark for William Hair Haseler, and was hallmarked in Birmingham, 1899. The fob is in better condition than is typical for its age. The surprising thing is that the front is not engraved, and doesn't look like it ever has been. It measures 42mm (1 1/2") top to tail and 25mm (1") wide at the widest point. Although intended as a gents item for a pocket watch chain, I think it would make an impressive Victorian Era pendant. All vintage items have been worn and loved before they find their next owner, so they should always be worn or used with a little more care than a brand new piece. Some minor scratches are normal. All vintage pieces I sell have been thoroughly cleaned and lightly polished when required. If repairs are needed before it's offered for sale, they are completed sympathetically. Thank you for looking and please have a look around the other items in my shop.
