Antique Silver Love Token Circa 1893-1901 Inscribed ‘Edith’

Absolutely charming Victorian love token created in an era when these personal tokens were given to show a loved one your devotion or the birth of new addition to the family!

This love token is a silver coinage displayed between 1893 and 1901 ‘Edith” engraved on one side and the original Queen Victoria portrait  on the verso.
Made from 925 silver and dated clearly to the verso as being struck in 1899, in such lovely condition for its 100 plus years!

A lovely addition to a #neckmess, charm bracelet or …. perhaps you have a fur baby named Arthur?
