French ANTIQUE VICTORIAN Religious Medal/Pendant - Mother of Pearl & Silver with Virgin Mary!
French Antique Victorian Religious Medal/Pendant - Mother of Pearl & Silver with Virgin Mary!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: Dated 1893 (possibly 1883)
ITEM: From France, a religious mother of pearl and silver pendant or medal, a Souvenir of the Jubilee of Notre Dame at Lourdes. The front depicts the Holy Virgin Mary in prayer surrounded by a hand engraved border. The back of the medal has an engraved notation (blackened) that reads "Svr du Jubile de N.D. Lourdes 1893". A touch of black paint to the back will heighten the wording.
CONDITION: Very nice though there is a bit of wear to the face of the Madonna - more than likely from stroking the medal over many a year!
METAL CONTENT: I can see no French punchmark on the piece - actually there really is no room to have put on - so I am thinking the piece is either silver or silverplate. However, going by mu "gut" feeling, I think the Mary piece is more silver than plate.
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: From top of bale (NOT jump ring) to bottom measures 1-1/2" x 3/4" wide.
WEIGHT: 2.2 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: A fabulous religious piece of the past!
