18th Century Gentlemans Watch Chatalaine
Outstanding 18th century 18K gold gentlemens watch chatelaine. The quality of the gold work and stone engraving is second to none. Consists of a beautiful watch key set with a moss agate, a single amethyst seal with a flying devil and a script I can not make out. Two three sided seals one in amethyst with "Reply if you please" on one side, a Bee flying over a hearth or hive on one side and "Excuse Haste" and a turtle on that last side. The citrine seal with "We part to meet again" with a pair of scissors on one side, then "Always at Home" with a snail and the last side with the all seeing eye then an X and what looks like "Return". All contained on a beautiful ring with safety chain. I cannot say enough about the quality & detail of this piece. By far the best I have seen in over 30 years in the business.
