ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 1900 PENNY FARTHING BRASS BROOCH/PENDANT
Queen Victoria (Victoria Regina) reigned from 1837 to 1901, the second longest-reigning monarch in British history. Her reign saw an unparalleled change in the United Kingdom and across the world as the Industrial Revolution started and the British Empire spread.
Every effort has been taken to clean up the coin, as well as the brass belcher chain and bow frontispiece, in a way that preserves the sovereign's portrait as well as much of the writing. This piece measures just 22mm x 40mm.
At over 120 years old, these coins are well worn – but this one shows Victoria clearly on the front and Brittania on the back. An opportunity to own a piece of history.
The piece is sold as seen. If you require work to make this piece into a pendant or brooch, please contact me for a quote. It could be worn as a pendant as is but would hang slightly askew.
