A grouping of three Georgian gold cased fobs, collected and hung from an engraved split ring (11/16”). All three fobs are in highly decorated mountings.

The carnelian fob is 1 1/16” high, and the smooth carnelian stone measures 7/16 x 9/16”.

The central fob is a watch key with a double swivel—one where the fob joins its pendant ring, the other is a two-sided bloodstone section with the key which turns for ease of use--measures 1 9/16” overall

The third fob is 13/16” overall and is set with a faceted, foiled citrine with an intaglio of a profiled face with a head band (or blindfold?) and a small guillotine—or it is Orpheus with his lyre?

This group is English, ca. 1820.
