Great Grandad's pendant

I was rummaging around in the attic in grandma's old trunk, and was suprtised to find this vintage pendant.

It was wrapped up in a sheet of old brown music score.
(Which is a lot darker than in the photo)

I do believe that he had the same hair colour as me too.
and I have definitely inherited his nose!
I have had to enlarge this photo so that you can see the little metal disc
It is mottled, and when I turned it over it was shiny yellow brass.
The clock has stopped of course - but it looks pleasing.
I must find something to hang on the tiny hole it is so small its hard to see.

Most of you know that I am rather short of 'blood' relatives - so it will come as no surprise to learn that the only rummaging I have done has all been in my daydreaming mind - and I created Great Grandfather's pendant from bits and pieces

So who is the man in the photo in the pendant?
King Edward VII
Well if you are going to dream - why not dream BIG huh?
