Description:
Örgryte Idrottssällskap medal awarded to Eulace Peacock in 1934. The medal consists of a blue and red ribbon with a safety pin stitched to the back and a bar looped through the bottom of the ribbon, attached to a medal. The circular, silver colored medal is held in place with a jump ring through the bezel. The obverse of the metal has a circular band running around the edge with relief text inside that reads [ÖRGRYTE · IDROTT · SÄLLSKAP] at the top and [GÖTEBORG · BALDERS · HAGE] at the bottom. Inside the band is a relief depiction of a lion in profile, sitting on its haunches, behind a scroll. In the center of the scroll is a seven (7) pointed star with the text [ÖIS] inside the star. A relief laurel branch is depicted next to the shield and lion. Near the lion’s foot is sporting equipment, including a rifle, polo mallet, a ball, and a racket. Below the lion is the name of the designer printed in small relief text that reads [G.EKVALL]. On the reverse of the medal, on the left side, is a relief depiction of a leafy branch. Along the bottom edge is a stamped maker’s mark for [C.G. HALLBERG] and a stamped hallmark that reads [A [inside an oval outline overlaying a heart shape with three crowns] / S [inside a hexagon shape] / H8].
