Antique Griffin Mythical Creature watch fob and chain with wax seals



This fabulous antique watch chain holds not only a wax seal but another fob that is a winged griffin (mix between an eagle and a lion) as well as a wax seal too. The longest chain from top of the clasp to the bottom of the griffin fob is almost 8". The second chain has 7 smaller chains that  hold the fob with the wax seal and letters BFH. The griffin has the letters JFC or JTC or GTC or GFC. It could go either way. Griffins were thought to be very wise and wily characters who spent a good deal of time seeking out and guarding gold and treasures.And this watch chain is surely a rare treasure! The lorgnette clasp is marked Bates and Bacon ( started making gold watch cases in 1884).       VintageSparkles offers Layaway on all our pieces regardless of which site it comes from.All layaway payments will need to be in the form of a check or money order only.
