An antique silver - most probably sterling - watch fob with original chain and dog clip, this sweet little find is, I believe, from the late Victorian / Edwardian period. There is nothing mundane about it either - I find the basketweave ribbon that runs the fob's perimeter at the waist eye-catching as well as the wire-work above it. Both elements enhance the orb's sculpturality which is, of course, underscored by oxidation and patina. The chain is comprised by "infinity" links and the dog clip at its end works perfectly. The set's overall length is 5 1/2" with the fob being approx. 7/8" in diameter and the chain with dog clip only measuring 4 1/2" long. The combination weighs 11.4 grams and while not signed for maker nor hallmarked for metal quality, it has been tested and is guaranteed to be silver, most probably of sterling purity. I will date conservatively to ca 1900 and end by saying that it's in excellent vintage conditio with fantastic patina, very tactile, with no damage and no repairs noted.
