2013—Day 76—Fob

My Irish grandfather’s jade and silver watch fob is my homage to St. Paddy’s Day. I have never been able to figure out the hallmarks stamped on it, though. Maybe some day I will. It probably belonged to his father who immigrated from Ireland some time after the mid 1800’s. I think the date hallmark indicates a date of either 1812 or 1892, a significant span of time. If my great grandfather brought it with him to America, it was probably created in 1812. I received the fob after my grandmother passed away in 1980. My grandfather died in 1940. Some day I hope to figure them out. It is now a pendant for a necklace.

  1. What a treasure! Wonder what year its from- and where the jade came from. It is really beautiful- and I love how you lighted it.
