This Belgian WWI victory medal depicts a winged victory standing on a globe, her arms and wings spread out, looking down at Earth. Here it is set in a bronze bezel and hangs from a chunky vintage silver chain.
World War I became known as the Great War because it affected people all over the world and was the biggest war anyone had ever known. It even came to be known as 'the war to end all wars', as no conflict before World War I had caused destruction on this scale before.
The pendant is 2-1/2 inches across and the necklace, which closes with a large silver hook, is 18 inches long.
