Last summer my little brother dug up this piece of jewelry with his metal detector in France (near Vichy). It's roughly 5 cm from top to bottom. It has no hallmarks.
From what time period could this piece date? It is made from pure silver, and was buried about 20 cm deep in the ground in the middle of a piece of forest. As far as I could find, it looks like a (Victorian?) pocket watch fob from the early twentieth century. Is it possible that this is indeed that old?
