A beautifully decorative English silver Maltese cross pendant fob on a cable chain. The fob is a nice large size and features and engraved pattern on the front with a diamond shaped cartouche that is monogram free. The vintage silver chain is a sturdy gauge with large oval links making for very attractive pendant necklace.
The fob is engraved on the back "S.W.L.C. and "M.G 2.5" 1945, D. Perrin 1st., 1H 5M 43s" so it looks as if it was originally an award for a race of some type. Possibly sports car racing.
