Vintage Retro Modern Modernist Sterling Silver Saint Christopher Medal on Chain
Dating to the 1960s or so may I offer this oval St. Christopher (Patron Saint of Travelers) medal on a bit of chain that isn't really large enough to be a bracelet - that is, unless you are a baby. No, I think the chain along with the charm was meant to be added to a key chain or watch fob. Condition is quite nice with a good strike to the front of the medal - the reverse does need a light polish. The charm is covered in a rhodium overlay and the rhodium is just starting to break down. A polish will keep the color of the piece consistent - eventually it will take on that warm patina that everyone likes in their silver.
Metal Content: Sterling Silver. The chain as well as the back of the medal are hallmarked STERLING.
Size: The medal measures 1-1/4" high (without the bale) x 3/4". The chain measures 4-1/2" long.
Weight: 10.6 grams combined
Final Comments: Adorable!
