This is a nice armorial fob seal, dating to the 17th - 18th century. It is cut with a round shield, displaying 'or, a chevron gules between three rosettes, on a chief gules'. The handle is formed as a stylized dolphin. The seal is cut with a coat of arms within a helmet crest. The back of the seal is engraved with letters of the owner's initials. This appears to read F. VIRET.
