Story

During the early 20th century, England produced remarkable sterling silver medals for all types of associations clubs and events. Frequently ornate, they could encompass enamel, rose gold, engraving and other detail. Here three such medals have been combines on a later but 20th century silver chain to be worn as a statement necklace.

The first award is an all silver medal engraved, "Bowdon Griffin, 1921 G. Clarke" and "Cheshire Country Amateur Bowling Association" with a crest; the next, a colorful Masonic plaque reads "Royal Masonic Institution for Girls" and has a crest; the rose gold badge has a monogram "O" and "R" and engraved on the back is "M.W.B.C.", "F.C." and 19045. All are fully English hallmarked.
