Thank you, yes it is a really nice piece, in very good condition, would love to know more about it's history, how many were made etc, and by whom? someone must have held this particular medallion very dear, enough for to wear it.

The wedding celebrations of Princess Viktoria Luise and Prince Ernst August ended with the Fackeltanz. The Fackeltanz was a torch dance. This dance was only performed at German royal weddings. No one below the rank of Royal Highness was allowed to take part.
