A spectacular carved mother of pearl hand fob/pendant from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This beautiful, hand carved piece is particularly large in size and wonderfully detailed. The hand has a closed fist and is clenching a cylindrical baton and swirling carved accents can be found at the wrist. the piece is finished at a gold cap which is detailed with a leafy motif and a bloodstone agate seal at the end. Carved into the seal is the letter "H". It It would look fabulous hanging from a long gold chain and would make a wonderful addition to any collection!

Condition: The overall condition of the mother of pearl fob/pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the mother of pearl hand, bloodstone seal or to the gold setting.
