A fob is a vest pocket in a gentleman's outfit. Often a fob held a pocket watch which was swung from a chain, attached to the vest pocket on the opposite side of the vest. These fob chains often had small pendants – as seals – and these pendants themselves became known as fobs.

A rare example of English origin, this beautiful trumpet fob has been hand engraved. Early details include metal armature for the more delicate golden exterior.
