    Description

    1906 ATHENS PENDANT (SILVER). Forged in a design identical to the bronze pendant, this offered piece was assigned to a member of the 'silver' committee at the 1906 Olympics.  Aside from the global interest in Olympic competition - which the world community would gladly absorb every two years, there are yet other arguments to re-institute the exclusively Grecian Olympics.  International amateur competition on such a grand scale would tend to enhance political harmony as hostile governments may be more inclined to cooperate if compeled to intermingle twice as frequently.  But for many of the athletes themselves, championship skills may very well peak in an intervening four-year period.  It was a good idea, which is now a century-old memory tangibly remembered by this piece.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
