Instagram:Ah, if only Triton could play his shell like a trumpet and still the waves, today. Triton -half man, half fish-, a helper of mortals in difficult times, is superbly cut from smoky quartz in this 19th century watch fob seal. Carrying a nymph, the whole scene mounted in a beautifully ornate 18 karat gold frame. The seal has the initials C.E.S.
