    Found this in a jar. Probably for a pocket watch chain fob. Tests sterling and has three letters stamped on the side along with British hallmarks but those are to hard to understand. The back has an interesting painting of what looks like a man playing tennis with a Native American teepee in the background flying an American flag. I could be wrong. Looks like 1880’s or later. An interesting piece no doubt.

      @Elisabethan, wow it’s gotta be related to that. The flag pole and hut/teepee is in the background. Very cool!

      After some cleaning and research I believe this to be made by a GL & Co. I’ve taken some photos of the hallmarks as well. Can’t make out much on the hallmarks but the makers mark is legible G Loveridge Co.
