SOLD Edwardian Sterling Silver Perpetual Calendar
A wonderful pendant from the Edwardian period, dated Birmingham 1904. The pendant is made from solid sterling silver and has a lion passant on the front as well as the hallmark to the back. It is a perpetual calendar; a calendar that works continually whatever the month or year. It is comprised of two discs attached to each other. The days of the week are on a spinning disc and this rotates to fall in line with the dates in the month. On the first day of the month, you move whatever day of the week that is to fall in line with the number 1. As the month proceeds, you will know the date according to the day of the week. A wonderful piece of engineering and useful too! The calendar has a lovely decorative feel to it and is in excellent condition.
