Vintage Plain Silver Gorget

SOLD This basic Gorget Silver Vintage has a polished finish.  The crafter hammered it from silver.  He attached a black shoelace for a tie.  You can switch that out with a piece of Deerskin Leather Lacing or your own chain.  You will find it a basic, simple addition to your Native American Regalia.
Metal Gorgets were originally worn by European military officers in the 18th century. In North America, Europeans gave gorgets to Native American leaders as trade goods. Over time, Metal Gorgets became prized trade items and part of Native American Regalia in the Eastern United States. This Gorget is appropriate for French and Indian War period regalia.
This Gorget Silver Vintage came from a collection.  A previous owner wore it.  You will see signs of wear and tarnish.  You can polish the tarnish off.  The gorget measures about 6 inches across and 2.25 inches wide at the widest point.   It comes with  pre-drilled holes for a suspension cord, lacing, etc.  One of a Kind!
