Often given as medals for compeitions and engraved with the winner's details, we love to find these vintage fobs to see what detailing they have to the front. This beautiful vintage silver and gold detailed fob would have likely been made for a dog competition held by the Leeds, England, Yorkshire Terrier Society.
We love the raised detail of the Yorkshire Terrier to the front, it's been given a pretty gold wash to make it stand out against the sterling silver too.
Sadly the fob hasn't ever been engraved to the back so we're not sure if it was ever awarded to anyone but it does mean there's room to add your own engraving though!
The fob is made of sterling silver with British hallmarks on the back for sterling silver, Birmingham, and the date letter C for 1902. There is also a maker's mark but it's hard to make out clearly.
The fob measures approx 35mm tall (approx 39mm tall including the jump ring) by approx 25mm wide and weighs approx 10.2g.
Condition - The fob is in good vintage condition but does show some signs of age and wear. There is some surface wear to the silver and gold wash. The jump ring is currently pushed closed.
*Please note the antique box and chain pictured are not included in the sale but the fob will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
