 Sold, thank you. 
Featuring a rare and very unusual antique early English Victorian gold figural watch fob key with a carnelian crown inlaid with agate at one end and an ornate scrolled piece in the center with a full figure of a dog. Fine detailing on the dog's coat and the scrolled piece. This piece, with the dog in the center, rotates 360 degrees, but does not come apart from the end pieces. Dates from the third to the fourth quarter of the 19th century. Measures just under 1.5" long. Very good condition with minor antique wear from age: dog's nose and the high spots on the scrolled area- silver color is showing on these worn areas. I am not sure if the metal under the gold is silver or some other metal. The gold may be rolled, filled, or some other process that was done in England in the 18th and 19th century as pinchbeck. Also, there are some minor crimped areas on the end of sides of the key, see photos. Satisfaction guaranteed or money back providing item returned in sent condition, within 3 days of receipt, and the way it was packed. Sales tax collected if sold in New York state unless valid tax number and NY resale certificate provided.
