    Item details

    This is hugely impressive piece.

    The chain and seal and key are 18K – they are not marked but have been tested and are at least solid 18K gold

    The whole piece weighs 84.8g

    The chain is made up of a length of wide fine gate mesh links. At one end is a gold split ring with a hinged and sprung bolt ring

    At the other end is a mount decorated with rich carving with flowers, clams and leaves and a suspension loop. Hanging from this is a large carved split ring.

    Hanging from this is a gold key set with a red hardstone on one side and a green bloodstone on the other. The key has a richly carved shank. The key measures 39mm wide x 16mm deep

    Hanging from the split ring is a solid gold seal set with a citrine in the base. The citrine is decorated with an intaglio of a shield topped by a phoenix. The seal has a superbly cast shank with raised flowers, clams and leaves, matching the mount on the split ring.

    The seal measures 37mm x 25mm x 22mm. 

    The chain measures 250mm in length including the split rings x 10mm wide x 6mm thick and is ideal for using as a bracelet.

    The whole piece is in 100% mint condition. Just superb.
