The bale loop has groove decoration and is good and wide, the base is oval in shape with scallop decoration top and the handle is good ornate rococo openwork decoration. Not hallmarked, so probably rolled gold…. Although not all gold items of this size were hallmarked…. The gemstone base is probably a dark orange citrine, it tests as gem. The carved intaglio has a gent and I would say it is portraying. Along with the seal fob, there is a sample wax seal on a square piece of card, showing how the seal looks when used. The seal fob is quite a large size, measuring approx 1. 1/2 inches in height. The base measures approx 31mm approx 1. 1/4 inches x 27mm. It is a beautiful seal! In overall good condition with a little age and use wear expected, but please be aware there are natural cracks within the gemstone intaglio and it’s nibbled around the edges too, see pics. This would look very grand on a pocket watch chain or a necklace if you are into William Shakespeare! See close up pictures for more details and condition. See the photographs which enlarge.
