C.1900 FRENCH Silver Plate Religious Medal/Pendant - Guardian Angel
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
Religious items are in a tricky place when it comes to listing. Most of the items I offer are jewelry so per Ruby Lane rules, they are supposed to be listed in jewelry. But I know that a lot of buyers look in the COLLECTIBLES RELIGIOUS category to find jewelry as well. So I am going to set down this rule for my listings and hope that once my customers get used to it, they will know where to look.
If an item is silver tone metal or silverplate/silver plate or gold filled- the item will be listed in COLLECTIBLES RELIGIOUS.
If an item is sterling silver or 14K Gold - the item will be listed in JEWELRY.
So may I now offer from my collection of religious treasures.....
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: A French silver tone/silver plate medal/pendant depicting a Guardian Angels guiding a child (with the inscription "O.S. Ange Guardien Soyez Mon Guide") on one side and an area for inscription on the back along with the inscription "Congregation des Saints Anges." This piece may have been intended for a young child upon First Communion or maybe it's just a piece for protection as in something for the newborn. I wish I knew more about these pieces.

METAL CONTENT: Silver plate or silver tone metal.
HALLMARKS: None that I can find.
SIZE: 13/16" x 1-1/8" (to top of bale)
