Vintage Art Deco Sterling Silver & Rose Gold Shield Pendant Necklace, Chester Dtd 1931 #c880 c827
This late Art Deco pendant is comprised of fine sterling silver and rose gold. It is a British piece from William John Pellow and was assayed in Chester. It's possible that this piece was originally used as a watch fob on a watch chain by gentlemen, but its beauty is truly appreciated when it's worn on a necklace chain. 

The pendant is oval in shape and is indented in the center. A raised rose gold shield sits in the center of the piece and is surrounded by beautiful chased designs. The top bail is very ornate and has lovely scrolls with chased details. The back of the piece is also indented with chased designs around the edges and has a full set of Chester hallmarks at the bottom. I have placed the pendant on a nice vintage sterling silver cable chain that complements it beautifully. The gorgeous rose gold shield would look amazing personalized with an initial or monogram. It's a superb gem!

The pendant measures about 1 1/2 inches long and 7/8 inch wide. As mentioned above, it bears a full set of Chester hallmarks that includes the letters "WJP" for William John Pellow, a lion passant for sterling silver, the Chester assay office symbol, and a date letter "f" for the year 1931. There is also a lion passant on the side of the pendant. The chain measures about 18 inches long. It's is signed "925" and "India" on its attached tag and "925" on the clasp. The combined weight of the pieces is 9.0 grams.

This pendant necklace would make a wonderful addition to an Art Deco jewelry collection. It is generously sized and would make a fantastic gift if personalized with an initial or monogram. It could also be removed from the chain and used on a fine watch chain with a pocket watch. It's a marvelous piece of jewelry history that you can collect, wear and pass down to future generations to enjoy. The pendant and the chain are in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear or to gift!
