Antique pocket watch key with a locket and intaglio of the Cootes family

Here is such a wonderful and exciting antique pocket watch key that is that and so much more.

Made in 18 carat yellow gold in the 1870's, not only does this have a pocket watch key that can rotate into itself securely, but it also has a locket on one side and a carved intaglio seal on the other.

The bloodstone intaglio has the Latin phrase "Vincit Veritas" which translates to "Truth conquers" and with this as well as the bird sitting on the top of the intaglio and other aspects of it, leads it to the being the family seal of the Cootes, which actually goes as far back as 1066.

With the locket on the other side having a dome front to magnify the image, and  a beautiful design at the top, this would of course not only suit a pocket watch, but make a wonderful and very unique and special locket.

Measuring 19.5mm wide by 38.3mm, this piece is as beautiful as it is exciting.
