A superb, extra large sterling silver medal from the Victorian era. This somewhat rare antique piece is Gothic Revival in design and amazing in its detail.
The equal sided cross has a central raised rosette and dome with Forget-me-not flowers and scrolled engraving to the arms. The curving flicks to the outer ends of the arms are just wonderful!
This antique beauty is expertly made and suits a long chain admirably.
+ All the details
Sterling silver stamped to the reverse side with an inscription in the lovely typestyles of the era, dated 1888 as seen in image #5
Size: 1.50 x 1.50 inches or 38 x 38mm, 1.25mm in thickness, 9mm at the central dome. The drop from the chain including the large suspension ring and fob clip is 68mm.
Age: 1888 - 129 years of age. Dated by the inscription date, the medal itself could be a little older.
Weight: 16.7 grams (without the chain)
Presented on a new stainless steel cable chain 34 inches or 86cm long. Stainless steel suits the color of antique silver well and is hypoallergenic.
The fob clip is new, antiqued 925 sterling silver and stamped as such. A versatile chain that is a useful wardrobe addition, shown on a life size torso in image #4.
Condition: Excellent. No issues at all - I consider this Victorian medal to be of museum quality.
Very different in size and design to any other sterling silver medal I have found. Incredible in it's workmanship and embellishment.
