This pendant was created in 1814 as a gift for Sir William Knighton, physician to the Prince of Wales (the Prince Regent, later King George IIV).    The inclusion of the attributes of peace (olive) and victory (palm) in the design (marking the successful outcome of the wars against Napoleon) suggest an 1814 creation for the pendant which also features a portrait head of the Prince of Wales with a laurel wreath.
