Vintage Silver Orb Pendant | 1951 Silver Shilling | United Kingdom, Scottish Crest Shilling Beaten Coin Pendant - 30 Inch Sterling Chain

Sorry, this item has sold.

An intriguing silver orb pendant made from two beaten 1951 English shillings, weighty and tactile it is a simply beautiful artisan made pendant.

+ All the Details

The 'Reverse' side of the coin carries an amazingly detailed 'Crowned Lion' seated atop a crown and holding a sword and sceptre. A fabulous historical coin.
The 'Head' side has the profile of George VI of England, father of Queen Elizabeth II.

The coin is a silver alloy, not solid silver and has a lovely burnished and warm color that looks very much like aged sterling.

.67 inches or 17mm diameter. The drop from the chain including the sterling bail ring is 22mm.

Weight: 11.3 grams (without the chain)

Condition: Very good. The head side is worn very smooth, all wording and detail is clear and readable. The crested side looks perfect.

The Chain:
Presented on a new 30 inch or 76cm sterling silver chain, stamped 925 to the clasp. Shown on a life size torso in image 2.

Janne's Notes
