FRENCH Silverplate Souvenir Pin - Lourdes/Saint Bernadette & The Virgin Mary
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer....
May I offer...
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: An Edwardian era silverplate/silver plate pin/brooch from France depicting the Apparition scene at Lourdes. Saint Bernadette kneels before the Virgin Mary in the Grotto. Front of the piece reads "Je Suis L'Immaculate Conception." Simple c-catch at the back to hold the pinstem in place.
CONDITION: Well, the strike of the design is very good - as to patina, someone tried polishing the front and didn't quite do it all round. The edge still shows tarnish and the back of the pin is pretty dark. The pinstem has a bit of gunk to it, perhaps sticker residue, perhaps some sort of tar or pitch. I'm thinking that with a bit of elbow grease everything should get a little more consistent in the patina.
METAL CONTENT: Silver plate or silver tone metal - perhaps even base metal. But the piece polishes like silver so I'll stick to the first metal.
HALLMARKS: None that I can find.
SIZE: 15/16" across
WEIGHT: 4.3 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Just another great religious souvenir pin from France!
