This is an antique Victorian period tortoise shell pendant in the form of 3 concentric shields. The 3 shields are hinged so they can move independently. They are all connected to a tortoise shell top piece with a gold metal bail on top. I haven't tested the metal content of the bail.
The pendant measures 2.5" x 1.25".
Condition: There are a couple of small nibbles in the shell - see photos.
This is a handsome antique pendant.
