by Salvador Dali (1974).
It appears that in the early 1970's, Dali had embarked on a collaboration with Philip R. Friedman, President of Silver Creations Ltd. It was from this collaboration that the Leda and the Swan medallion was born.
The COA indicates that the medallion was limited to 7,500 in 18k gold over bronze; 2,000 in solid sterling silver; and 500 in solid 18k gold.
Most sightings of this medallion show it within a bezel, to be worn as a pendant, with an included pouch and a COA.
I have since observed this pewter medallion at auction from a UK vendor who tells me that a relative won it in a raffle about 25 years ago. It is impossible to authenticate this statement, but the seller includes the medal in a bezel similar to the one the limited edition comes with, and an info document. Perhaps this pewter version was an unlimited edition promotional item.
The pewter medallion weighs 25.5g, is about 37mm in diameter, and is stamped on the rim "AMI PEWTER ASGL."
But wait, that's not all!
Ms. Friedman was kind enough to offer to me one other item I have not seen before: a Leda and the Swan plate.
This plate is cool. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea about the origin of this item. I don't think this plate was ever officially released, and there is no proof in cyberspace that this item exists anywhere else on the planet.
Could it be a one-of-a-kind?
The emblem is in perfect condition, but the plate itself is in rough shape. It has a number of dents, dings, scratches, and scuffs. Here are several pictures which hide most of those blemishes.
