Decorative George V sterling silver Royal Agricultural Society of England medal in case. Obverse: Raised profile of King George V, left, in frosted silver. Background polished silver. Around rim: GEORGE V. KING. Reverse: In centre, raised decorative plaque in frosted silver with royal crown, surrounded by sunburst, above and garland of roses below HORTICULTURAL/ EXHIBITION. Below, centred by rim, plain frosted silver plaque engraved 1931. Around rim in raised letters ROYAL . AGRICULTURAL . SOCIETY . OF . ENGLAND. The hallmarks for Birmingham 1931 are stamped right of centre between this inscription and the garland of roses and can be seen clearly with a magnifying glass. Left of centre is stamped the makers mark MN&WB. The names of the recipients of the medal are engraved on the flange BOWELL & SKARRATT..

Like so many British medals, the obverse is rather sober, while the reverse is delightfully decorative. This is enhanced by the contrast of frosted and polished silver and raised and engraved lettering, which is very effective.
