Sterling Silver Watch Fob Pendant with Oval Cartouche


Circa 1911, 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 charm or pendant. In the center of the pendant is a 9k gold blank oval-shaped cartouche that has not yet been engraved, and so could be personalized. Behind it, the pendant is hand cut into a reticulated shape, and elaborately hand-engraved with brite cut work. The cutout is lace like, and took a great deal of work to engrave, requiring a high level of craftsmanship. 

A smaller bail is built into the fob as an original feature of the piece. Its exterior measurement is 4.5 mm, and the opening for a chain is approximately 2.5mm. There are a variety of chains that this pendant looks great on. 

The pendant is 1 1/8” wide and 1 1/2” tall. It weighs 10.25 grams. It is marked on the back with the date letter “M” for 1911, as well as the British mark for sterling silver. 

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