TIFFANY & Co. Retro 14kt Gold St. Christopher Medal + Brass Key Pendant
A unique Tiffany & Co. key pendant from the Retro (ca1940s) era! This sentimental piece is comprised of a 14kt yellow gold Saint Christopher topper with a brass key bottom. Similar in size to a typical household key, the surmount displays a majestic depiction of Saint Christopher, the patron saint of all travelers, carrying a child across a mighty river, which is one of his most famous stories. The image is wonderfully detailed, including beaming sun rays, textured clothing, and is encircled by the phrase "St. Christopher -- Look at me and be safe." The back has a smoothly polished finished, perfect for adding a personalized engraving, and is stamped "14K" along with the authentic "TIFFANY & CO." hallmark. The entire key hangs from a solid gold bail at the top, perfect for adding to a favorite chain, and the brass bottom could be cut and used as an actual key, if desired. It's a wonderful and unusual piece and would make a special addition to any collection!
Measurements: The key pendant hangs approximately 2 1/8" long, is 5/8" wide and a little more than 1/16" at the thickest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold medal top or key.
