This very special necklace features a sterling silver with rose gold cartouche watch fob pendant on a modern sterling silver chain with a fob clasp. It is hallmarked Birmingham 1906 with the makers mark W.H.H. for William Hair Haseler.
In 1870, Haseler founded the company, W. H. Haseler & Co., specializing in gold and silver work, and jewellery. Five years later, Arthur Lasenby Liberty opened a shop on the corner of Regent Street in London which soon became the most fashionable place to shop in London. During the 1890s, Liberty formed relationships with many leading English designers and manufacturers including William Haseler. In 1898, Liberty and Haseler created a formal partnership to launch the Cymric silver line under the title “Liberty and Co. (Cymric) Ltd.” using freelance designers. William Hair Haseler died in December 1909 in Shropshire, but his company continued in partnership with Liberty until 1926. Haseler pieces can be found in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, as well as many other museums throughout England.
A fob is an adornment or a seal that hung from the ribbon or chain of a Gentleman's pocket watch. Its purpose was to decorate or add weight to the watch chain. Watch fob pendants were often given as prizes or to commemorate a special occasion or event.
This very gorgeous fob was awarded to Isabel Will for good attendance at Brownhall School in 1908. A real treasure and snapshot of history.
The fob measures 4cm x 2.3cm (including the bail). The total length of the chain is 60cm.
