Steampunk Watch Fob,Soviet Order of Maternal Glory. Copper Plated Pewter!! This reproduction of a historic Soviet Russian medal is a real treasure of industrial art. The original was beautifully sculpted in the classic style of Soviet 'heroic art'. The image represents the order of Maternal Glory, Class 3. Originally these were a suspended medal to be worn on the chest. I realized they would make perfect watch fobs. What is a watch fob? It's essentially a counterweight to the chain that suspends your pocket watch ( essential Traveler gear). Please see the pics of the fob attached to my pocket watch ( watch and chain are NOT part of this auction: For demonstration purposes only!!) I cast this reproduction from an original in my collection from Britannia Pewter, the highest tin content and purest form of jewelry grade pewter out there. Britannia Pewter is lead and nickel free.
The fob/pendant measures 35 x 30 mm ( approx 1 1/2" x 1 1/4") and has been cast originally in pewter and then selectively plated in copper. The figure of the woman holding the child, the placard below and the letters 'CCCP' have been copper plated. The copper is real and will tarnish/verdigris with time. The rest of the image has been left in finished pewter. I have included a bale ring for quick attachment.
