An intriguing little Victorian fob ornament that is a sterling silver tassel.
The beautiful puffy heart shaped cap has all-over texture and the foxtail chain braids are pliable and silky to the touch. Each of the seven braids is capped with a silver ball.
The tassel is lovely worn on a necklace chain as the braids gently stir with movement.
+ 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: 1.6 inches or 4cm long and the heart measures 13mm across and 6mm in thickness.
Weight: 3.9 gms (without the chain)
Age: mid-late 1800s
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. No issues to report. All braids present with silver ball caps secure, no fraying to the braids - it is most unusual to find one in such good condition.
These tassels fascinate me - the braids are so silky to handle that it seems impossible that they are metal. They are wonderful and never fail to elicit attention as they move with the wearer.
