Description

A unique silver gilt medal and pendant dating to the Arts and Crafts period, with green enamel detailing and a turquoise cabuchon, presented to a Past President of the National Society of Arts Masters.

The Society was formed in 1888 when a group of English school teachers recognised the value of teaching arts in classrooms and aimed to raise the standards within schools and of the teachers themselves. Initially the 'Society of Art Masters', they became the 'National Society of Art Masters' by the end of the 1800s, and remained that until 1944 when they changed to become the 'National Society for Art Education'. In 1984 they became known as the 'National Society for Education in Art and Design' and still exist today, being instrumental in arts teaching throughout education in the UK.

This medal therefore dates to between 1900 and 1944 and given the form I would suggest it dates closer to the Art and Crafts period, around 1900 to 1910. It is sterling silver (tested and marked), gilded and set with apple green enamel and central turquoise cabochon, while the lettering of the society runs around the outside of the medal.
