I am trying to date this find. I now know it is probably Victorian. How do I find out more about watch chains and fobs? Is it Gold plated vs, rolled gold vs plated. And is the mesh gold too? I am assuming the Trojan/Roman soldier cameo fob is amber colored glass. This is not my area of expertise. I would love to know more about it, how it was worn etc. it may have been my great Gtandfathers - he was a California judge in the late 1800 he arrived in 1850+/- from Boston. Thank you for helping.
I found jmf& co on the swivel clasp.
