Identify Coat of Arms in Silver Jewellery
« on: Wednesday 10 October 18 15:38 BST (UK) »
Hi, I have this pendant I got 50 years ago from an aunt since deceased. Can anyone identify where it might be from?

Holy Roman Empire, or Russian.

It has the look of an Order's neck decoration. The double headed eagle is typical.

But, it looks like a cheaper version. With that coat of arms, I wonder if it is an association or society.

I would agree with Kiltpin.

The double-headed eagle is holding, in it's claws, a mace and an orb.
That tends to be associated with the Russian Empire, or the Russian Federation?
