Mark Thomas Gorget

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.
