I have owned this a few years, and just remembered that I had it. Nice unmarked jeweler made piece.....I am guessing around 1910? Any thoughts?

how do you "just remember" that you had this beautiful emblem? If it's that easy to forget, I'll gladly put it as the centerpiece of my collection :D

Truly attractive piece The stempling around the globe always gets to me, as it adds much more to the character of the emblem. I would be inclined to offer suggestion that it is of a Gemsco pattern... based on the configuration and general pattern of the continents? The type and method of anchor fouling suggests it may be earlier than suggested? Thanks for sharing
