Anchor shaped gold alloy pendant or earring. The pendant is inscribed with the words 'NELSON'S VICTORY AUGUST 1 1798', and there are traces of black enamel behind the letters that make up the inscription. The pendant was made to commemorate the Battle of the Nile, and it has been suggested that these pendants/earrings were originally worn on the coat in the centre of a patriotic 'favour', but 'The Morning Post and Gazeteer' 8 November 1798 says 'The Ladies in compliment to our naval victories, sport the golden anchor, which suspended by a chain, rests on the bosom'.
