This old medallion is a beautifully detailed piece featuring the sport of curling. It shows a curler stretched out ready to release the rock or stone. The player appears to be dressed in a heavy sweater and winter pants. He’s wearing a small hat and he has a stabilizer in his left hand. Across the top, in script, it reads; St. Mortiz. Behind the curlers right foot are the letters; AFTFR. On the back of the medal it reads; Curling Club Engiadina - St. Mortiz. I find no maker or other information on the back or side. It is made of a non magnetic metal with a silver tone finish and the weight and quality would lead me to believe that it might be made of bronze with a silver colored finish. The only references I have found regarding the Engiadina Curling Club was that the club, with the skip Paul Lareida, won the Swiss Men’s Curling Championship in 1945. That national championship has been held annually since 1943. I have not been able to establish an actual date on this piece.
It measures almost 2” in diameter by almost 1/8” thick and is in nice condition with minimal wear and minimal scratches. The back has one scratch that’s about 3/8” long and the edge has minimal nicks.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
