A tangle of Roses adorn the metal work of this fob seal. The carnelian seal is carved with a Lion Rampant, as a crest. The Lion was a popular image in Heraldry, used as a symbol for many things, including Bravery, Royalty, and Strength.
Many Fobs where made of base metal which then had a Heavy gold sheet applied to it and the details hand engraved.
I have a love for fobs and try to always have a nice selection. They make wonderful pendants and layering pieces.
