The Victorian Era is named after Queen Victoria, whose reign over Great Britain lasted from 1837 'til her death in 1901.​  The Victorian Era jewelry period is divided into 3 periods:  The Romantic Period (c. 1837-1860), The Grand Period (c. 1860-1885), and The Aesthetic Period (c. 1885-1901), with each period having its own distinct characteristics.

This magnificent Mid-Victorian Era (circa 1860-1885) seal fob features a hand-carved intaglio mounted in a 14K rolled gold stamp, fully embellished with floral detailing.  The fob is rather large, measuring 39mm long x 32mm wide x 46mm tall.  It has a gross weight of 1.8 troy ounces.

The carnelian is hand-engraved with a shield that reads:  "J'AIME ET CRAINS DIEU" which translates from French as "I love and fear God".
