Sterling Silver English Watch Fob Pendant


Circa 1912, this sterling silver pendant would have originally been used as a watch fob. Now it can be hung from a chain and worn as a beautiful necklace or bracelet. The hand cut piece of metal features a blank shield or cartouche that has not yet been engraved, and so could be personalized. Behind it is another piece of brite cutwork, with tiny flowers and leaves, and a surrounding ring decorated with triangles, diamonds, and lines that are engraved, like calligraphy, into the silver. 

The back of the pendant is marked for Birmingham and 1912. Both the pendant and the jump ring are marked with a lion, the British maker’s mark for sterling silver. The pendant weighs 5.75 grams. It measures approximately 1” across, and 1 3/8” tall, not including the jump ring. The jump ring measures 9mm across. 

The pendant is ready to be worn as is, or could be further engraved for a pendant that is uniquely yours.
