Societe' Canine Du Sud-Est Medal on Sterling Toggle Chain
Bronze medals such as this were once given as awards at Dog Shows in Europe in the Early 1900's. This medal from the Canine Society of the South East of France is one such medal. Measuring 2 1/4" long by 1 5/8" tall this bronze medal is an outstanding medal from this time period and features a huntsman presenting his hounds to the seated judge who has two sight-hounds by her side. Another presenter flanks her right side, ready to present his entry. The medal has been set with a sterling silver framework and prongs and suspended from a vintage sterling chain finished with watch chain swivels at the attachment points and a toggle closure. The overall length of this stunning piece is 18". One-of-a-kind.
