This narrative piece features a rare mid 19th century  Odd Fellows medal.  The early fraternal medal is fraught with imagery, including the all knowing eye, an open bible, an hour glass, a bundle of sticks, an open palm with a heart on it, and  the linked rings with F, L, and T symbolizing friendship, love, and trust.  Strung on a Sterling chain with Chalcedony faceted oval beads and a sterling toggle clasp.

The second piece is composed of a Brass 1945 Belgian WWII medal with a artful figurative image of a woman with her draped arms extended over a background of international flags. This striking piece is constructed of aged Brass chain and hook clasp with faceted Aventurine rondelles.

Happened upon this amazing little jewel just a block off of Alamo Square. Shop owners Kelly and Rod have a great eye for hunting and gathering finds from all over the Bay Area. The Perish Trust is a treasure trove of unique and wonderful items sure to inspire and intrigue.  I am so pleased to have found such a perfect venue for my pieces. I can’t wait to return again.

I’m so excited about some more of my Chicago finds… the Indian Chief, the bee belt buckle, and the 1904 Fudge Contest.  Other sources of inspiration include a 1936 Sterling Smith & Corona 2nd prize for proficiency in typing, a 1908 Montevideo Science commemorative plaque, and a amazing trophy medal of a stag from Budapest.
