Antique Compass & Carnelian Fob

Antique Compass & Carnelian Fob


A simple yet beautiful fob that would have been used on a watch chain and carried around by a Victorian gentleman. One side has a working compass and the other has a lovely inset natural carnelian stone, which means the fob can be worn two different ways.


It's a true antique piece with crisp hallmarks showing it's made in solid 9ct gold in Birmingham with a date letter for 1894 and a makers mark "CDB" which is most likely for Charles Daniel Broughton, a goldsmith registered in 1882.


The compass has been well loved and shows signs of this. The glass over the compass has scratch marks. The gold setting does have some light scratches and faint denting to one side. The arrow moves freely inside (although I wouldn't count on its accuracy if lost in the forest). The carnelian is a lovely rich dark orange/red with no damage or nibbles. A newer 9ct jump ring has been attached to the top decorative bail so it is ready to be hung on a chain.
