We have no idea what this medal might pertain to within the brief history of. California State College at Los Angeles. While California State University, Los Angeles was founded in 1947 its name has not always been the same.
This name was instituted in 1964 and remained until 1972 when it became the now California State University, Los Angeles. So with that bit of history we are able to date this piece as most likely being made during that 6 year window.So if you happen to have some insight as to the origins of this piece, please, share your knowledge. What we can say is this piece is very heavy with over 5 ounces of sterling silver contrasted with a stately blue enamel. It is beautifully crafted with an arts and crafts era aesthetic. And it's looking for a new home. It has not been polished in order to maintain its rich patina and enhanced character. The original blue velvet ribbon is included, though its not in the the best condition. Feel free to change that if you must.
This would make a wonderful gift for a California history buff or academic. All Proceeds of this Sale Benefits Charity.
