Very interesting and cool!! I couldn't figure out what this was. At first I thought it was a pendant, very odd pendant. Today as I was cataloging my collection, I noticed that the price tag attached to it had writing on it. It says, "1890s watch fob." On the front it's engraved Toronto with a very pretty leaf and the back says 'Eero'. I looked up the name and it is a Finnish origin. Too bad there wasn't a last name to go along with it!! If anyone has some information about watch fobs or if they have seen something like this before please comment! New to watch fobs! :) Thank you!

    Very nice article!! I have been learning quite a bit in the past few days about watch fobs!! I think I'm going to hang on to this for a little while so I can researach the name on it. I'm trying to see if I can match the pendant/locket that says 'Marge Fournier'. So far I've traced the family back to Canada around the 1950s but no luck with the name 'Eero. It might not have any connection to the family at all but I'm having fun with it! Hopefully I find something! Oh and thank you for the awesome information!

    This imagery is very much like the Patriotic Postcards of around 1910 which I have a large collection of. The maple leaf is used heavily at that time in almost all patriotic cards and Canadian Design motifs. Even now our flag proudly displays a maple leaf, along with our Canadian National coat of arms. This is a superb piece, lucky you to recognize its significance !~Phil
