Ornamental urns were a popular device in 19th century Archaeological Revival jewels, with their obvious reference to ancient Greek, Roman and Etruscan cultures.

This finely executed 14-carat gold watch fob features a chubby urn covered with exquisite fine filigree, hanging from a short chain of similarly decorated balls interspersed with twisted plain links.

A dog clip and T-bar complete this versatile piece, which can be hung from a wide variety of chains.
