A must for all Peaky Blinders fans and lovers of unique vintage silver pendants this hallmarked 1936 Birmingham watch fob is an impressively large size with plenty of heft and perfect for silver pocket watch chains and statement neck chains.
Incredibly it has never been worn or even removed from the original Fattorini & Sons box, so despite age, it is in mint condition. The fob is engraved with a billiard table and scrollwork decoration on the front with the back engraved to N Allen, of the Dominion Works, winner of the 1937 billiard handicap.
The Dominion Works was a Birmingham based factory manufacturing mattresses and spring bedsteads. The blue cardboard presentation box is printed Fattorini & Sons Ltd., Bradford Works, Birmingham.
It is a rare treat to find a fob of this age in such complete and original unworn condition and it must have meant a lot to someone to keep it this way, it deserves to be treasured again!
