We love finding these antique love tokens, you never know what engravings you're going to find! These sentimental gifts were made of coins, smoothed down on either one side or both and then hand engraved with names, terms of endearment, special dates or even secret messages and then gifted to your loved one - such a sweet present to show your love!
This Victorian British love token has been smoothed down on one side and then hand engraved 'Mother' with an ivy leaf behind. The Victorians were known for their love of symbolism, especially with flowers, and ivy is said to represent the sweet phrase 'I cling to thee' as ivy is a climbing plant.
The other side has been left as is and shows Queen Victoria. We believe this coin is a silver threepence.
The love token is made of sterling silver. The love token measures approx 16.2mm in diameter (approx 21mm tall including the jump ring at the top) and weighs approx 1.4g.
Condition - The love token is in good antique condition with some surface wear to the silver. The jump ring is currently soldered closed. Please see photos.
*Please note the box and chain pictured are not included in the sale but the pendant will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
