Antique Fob Chain Tassel | Victorian Fob Ornament | Stork Pendant | Sterling Silver Tassel | Gift for New Mother - 20 Inch Sterling Chain

Sorry, this item has sold.

An intriguing little Victorian fob ornament that is a sterling silver tassel. This one is rather unusual; the cap is wide rather than round and is hand chased with a gorgeous little stork - a wonderful gift for a new mother.

The pendant has a different design on each side - with a paisley-like design on the reverse side to the stork, it can be worn either way. The five foxtail chain braids are graduated lengths and are pliable and silky to the touch. Each is capped with a silver ball.

+ All the details

There are no silver marks (not unusual for the era) the fob ornament is testing as sterling silver and is guaranteed as such.

Tassel Size: 1.5 inches or 38mm long and measuring 11mm across the cap, 2mm in thickness.

Weight: 2.4 gms (without the chain)

Age: mid-late 1800s (from the Victorian Aesthetic Period of design)

The Chain:
Presented on a new 20 inch or 51cm sterling silver chain, stamped as such on the clasp. Photograph 3 shows the pendant and chain on a life size torso.

Condition: Excellent. All braids present with silver ball caps secure, no fraying to the braids. Lovely natural patina to the aged silver.

Janne's Notes:
These tassels fascinate me - the braids are so silky to handle that it seems impossible that they are metal. This one is very different and very lovely!
