This is a wonderful Georgian gold (18k) fob, which is set with a faceted, smoky quartz intaglio of a family crest with a dividing line.

Three running greyhounds or whippets are on one side, with another hound opposite.

On this side three thistles grow from the center of a V, two above the hound, one below.

There is carved scrollwork all around the outside of the crest, and it is concave, leaving a raised seal when pressed in putty or wax.

Beautifully done.
