Here's what's inside box two of our 12 Days of Christmas Advent... A vintage 1926 silver and rose gold engraved fob and chain.
We found this vintage silver fob with a blank rose gold shield, just calling out to be engraved with a sweet sentiment. We engraved the phrase 'Love guides me' as a perfect reminder to focus on the choices you make everyday. To the front of the fob there is also original scroll engraving surrounding the shield and beautiful open-work detailing too.
The fob also has original engraving on the back which reads 'Purley Hospital Cup Runners Up 1926.7'. There are also British hallmarks on the back for the maker S.Bros, Birmingham, sterling silver and the date letter B for 1926.
We've strung the engraved fob on a new rose gold plated sterling silver fancy link chain so it's ready to wear. The chain measures approx 24 inches long and has a bolt ring clasp. The clasp is marked '925' for sterling silver. The chain link measures approx 2mm wide and the chain weighs approx 3.55g in total.
The fob measures approx 27mm tall (not including the fittings at the top) by approx 20mm wide and weighs approx 4.4g.
Condition - the fob is in good vintage condition with light surface wear to the rose gold shield and silver. There is a small mark near the top left hand of the shield, but as the rose gold is quite reflective it isn't too noticable when worn (Please see photos).
