Italian 19C Gold Washed Brass Miraculous Communion Medal
The medal measures 1 and 7/16" (3.7cms) long, including the ring, by 1 aand 1/16" (2.8cms). It is substantial as it weighs 9.7 grams.
On the front is a raised image of Our Lady. Powerful rays emanate from her hands and she crushes a serpent, representing the devil, beneath her feet. On four sides is a little angel head and wings. Around the edge is an inscription in Italian – which translates as `O Mary Conceived Without Sin Pray For Us Who Have Recourse To You'. At bottom left is the signature 'S.J'.
On the back is the communion chalice with ears of corn and bunches of grapes. Once again the four little angels are present. Around the edge is inscribed in Italian `Souvenir of My First Communion'.
At the top is a ring and then a bail to hold a pendant.
For an antique piece the condition is good and it still has the glimmer of gold. I think it is rather special and will arrive in a gift box.
