Detailed British Watch Fob and Medal Necklace
This great heirloom piece features a vintage British fob medal and a watch fob on a fob closure. The pendants can be removed and changed out to create your own special creation.
Amongst the smallest hallmarked antiques commonly available are watch fob medals, a decorative item now scarcely remembered, even by the few remaining wearers of pocket watches. Fob medals, hung from the watch chain, were small badges of status, allegiance or achievement - sometimes only recognisable to others of a group. The variety of decoration in these medals was huge (mostly Classical or heraldic forms) but also a large number depicting sports specifically football. What they all seem to have in common is that they embodied memories or sentimental attachments. The backs are often engraved with dates, names and achievements - many of these engravings have secret meanings only familiar to the original owner.
