18th Century Derby Chelsea Porcelain “Cupid Caressing Dog” Fob Pendant

US$2,500Asking Price


An original 18th Century porcelain Derby Chelsea period fob seal. This particular piece features Cupid and a dog and displays the pale colouring typical of the Chelsea factory. The original gold bail and seal base are both present on this Georgian piece. Features the motto in red, "FAVORI DE L'AMOUR". These seals would have been given as love tokens by the rich and famous of the day. Excerpt from Bryant's The Chelsea Porcelain Toys (1925) p.123 - "Cupid kneeling on a white base caressing a dog. He has a quiver slung on his back by a ribbon edged with gold and the motto in red. The first part is illegible, the last word "... AMOUR." Mounted as a seal."
