It was made by a Birmingham jewelers in England with the makers initials JJ,  Sadly little is known as to who this was, a maker now lost to history.  The weight of this fob is 5 grams.  Diameter approx. 20mm  The fob has now found its way on to the chain of a private collector of masonic fobs and sits along side some other very rare examples.
