Description: A silver pocket-watch fob seal of the Georgian period. The seal is of 'chessman' style with a wire chain-link still connected to the suspension loop. The oval seal face is engraved with the monogram JF, or possibly IF, in decorative script letters.

Recorder notes that there is a very small WS (maker's mark) stamped on the upper rim of the seal, which he was unable to photograph.

Description: A gilded copper-alloy fob seal of the Georgian to early Victorian period. The oval intaglio depicts a woman leaning on an anchor, representing Faith and Hope. Decoration to the seal housing consists of foliar decoration to the sides and small stars to the base. The handle and suspension elements are now missing. The intaglio appears to be moulded rather than engraved, which would suggest that the stone is yellow coloured glass.

Description: A 19th century copper-alloy fob seal frame. The seal die is missing but would have been oval in shape and probably of glass or gemstone. The base of the frame consists of a plain oval ring in which the seal would have been set. There are two approximately semicircular arms with moulded scroll decoration attached to the base, and these incline together and converge at the top where they are joined to a circular suspension loop. This type of fob-seal was often attached to a chain from which a fob-watch was also suspended, frequently called an 'Albert' referencing Queen Victoria's Prince Consort.
