Mark Thomas

Sterling Silver Gorget, approvimately 3 3/8" wide x 1 1/8" at the center line. This piece is the size of some trade silver items but with a finer motif of an acanthus engraved with floral accents. The edge is turned over around the gorget with a border of nick/dot engraving. The gorget is suspended from a chain with toggle link for an easy connection. The chain is attached to buttons, as seen on some of the finer antique examples.

This Large cross with flower center is Sterling Silver, 2 1/4" tall without bale and 1 1/2" wide.

Mark is a maker of 18th and 19th century objects d'art.
