Hallmarked at the Birmingham Assay Office in 1908, this silver watch shield has been repurposed by the addition of a silver chain to be worn as a pendant.  A real statement piece, the shield is very ornately decorate to the front and features a shield-shaped cartouche below and ribbon banner - both plain polished, against a background of swag and garland patters.  The second-hand silver trace chain measures a maximum of 45cm/18 inches and may also be fastened up to 5 cm/2 inches shorter.


If you wish to be worn on a silver watch chain, we can quickly and easily add this to the chain.


These old watch Albert Shields, which are also available in gold, were worn on the end of the watch chain with the watch at the opposite end.  The watch would be kept in the waiscoat pocket , whilst the shield or fob was visible on the front of the waistcoat.  They were often awarded for sports such as football, cricket, bowls, snooket,  played at a local level.
