J. The are a stunning set of matched emblems, by all appearance, have been mated for life. The hand tooled fret-work is as nice as they come. I think these early 20's Meyer applied continents are my favorite, as they are so easy to identify from the front. This maybe the first time I've seen these dress emblems with the "Fire Bronze" hallmark. Will have to check our ref. sec.

Thank you for sharing with us, a welcome future addition to the ref. sec. s/f D.

Thanks for the comments. They really make a statement, in regards to pride in craftsmanship, a thing that is lacking today.
