A 19th century watch fob or pendant seal with a large oval orange stone, possibly chalcedony or carnelian, set within a thin silver frame. The stone depicts, on one side, a helmeted bust, right, possibly Minerva and on the other a monogram of letters, possibly JP, likely the initials of the owner. The silver frame is constructed from a band of metal, with a pair of parallel grooves running around the outside and a pair of drilled pivot points at either end of the long axis to mount the seal within a rotating suspension frame, now missing.
