Rare! Antique Victorian Nautical Compass Gold F Watch Fob Charm & Chain~1880s
Welcome! For your antique Victorian era watch fob charm and chain. This wonderful old piece is fresh out of a very old estate--I've never seen another like it!
This neat oldwatch chain and fob appears to be either gold filled, or gold washed brass and it has a marvelous patina that only time can give it. The chain is 11.5" long and is in very nice antique condition. The fob is a nautical compass and measures .80" or 22mm in diameter. The fob would also make a terrific pendant or charm. It is substantially made--the thick glass is beveled and the frame has a lovely EtruscanRevival motif. When I flip the compass from side to side, it appears to be working, with the appropriate portion pointing north. There is a bit of rust on the anchor and some tiny flecks of rust inside the compass. But overall it is in nice condition for its age. It is very unique!
This rare compass fob and chain will be a fantastic addition to your collection! Where will you find another like this one? Don't miss this chance to make it yours at a great buy-it-now price!
