Antique rose gold compass fob

£145.00

A well loved compass fob designed to be worn on a watch Albert but it would make a fabulous pendant today. I say well loved because it is evident from the ‘glass’ that this particular piece has seen a good deal of wear. Having been worn on a watch Albert, hanging from the button hole of a waist coat, these fobs very often took a good deal of wear and tear when the wearer stood up or sat down. I can only imagine the conversations this compass has been privy too. I can imagine it being worn at very formal dinner parties over the last 100 years, fine food, fine wine, fine jewellery.
