This pewter replica pilgrim token is based on an original found on the banks of the river Thames (London). The original is dated to the 14-15 century and is thought to depict the martrydom of St Thomas Becket. Becket is shown kneeling before a knight with sword drawn. Likely bought by a pilgrim after a visit to Becket’s shrine at Canterbury Cathedral.
Hand cast in England with lapel pin fixing, supplied in a presentation box.
