Antique Fob Tassel Pendant | Victorian Rolled Gold Tassel Necklace | Unusual Etruscan Revival Foxtail Tassel, Gothic Pendant - 20 Inch Chain


An exquisite Victorian rolled gold fob chain tassel with an Etruscan Revival cap and eleven tassels of foxtail chain braid. The braids are silky and pliable to the touch and each is capped with a ball of gold.

+ All the details

There are no stamps at all (not unusual for the era) the tassel is rolled gold (not solid gold) and is of English descent. There are eleven tassels with a ball cap on each - this is rather unusual as fob tassels usually have five or six tassels.

Sizes: This is a smaller tassel, 1.18 inches or 30mm long. The widest part of the tassel cap measures 9mm or .35 inches diameter.

The Chain:
Presented on a new 20 inch or 51cm chain in 14ct gold fill, stamped to the clasp. Photograph 2 shows the locket and chain on a life size torso.

Weight: 3.1 gms

Tassel age: c.1880

Tassel condition: Excellent. No fraying to the 6 foxtail chains, all ball caps are in place.

Janne's Notes:
I am always fascinated by the remarkable workmanship of these beautiful silky Victorian tassels. This rather rare beauty has more tassels than most and is oh, so pretty in gold!
