Antique Victorian Gilt Brass & Amethyst Glass Mourning Fob Seal/ Motto Pendant:
Victorian Motto Mourning Fob: 'Tho lost to sight, to memory dear'
A Victorian gilt brass and amethyst-colour glass costume fob seal with a memorial inscription 'Tho lost to sight,to memory dear'. This is a functional wax seal, and may have been used to seal correspondence after a bereavement.
The gilding is rubbed on all the high points, revealing the brass beneath, but otherwise the fob is in good shape with no dents or rips in the metal, and the seal matrix in is excellent condition. The fob measures 1.4 cm across by 2.2cm high (not including the suspension ring), and weighs 5.9g.
