Dated 1890 FRENCH SILVER First Communion Medal/Pendant with Chain
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: Dated 1890
ITEM: From France, a First Communion silver medal/pendant that was presented to a child on their special day! This one features Jesus with open arms welcoming children to the front - at the back, the Dove of Peace along with a banner with the engraving "MH 15 Juin 1890". The silver has a mottled front and back, most unusual. Features are exactly as cast, I don't think there is wear - merely patination to the silver. Oh, and the pics of Jesus really look awful - I assure you - the medal is not. The medal comes on its original chain - child sized, of course.
CONDITION: Very nice with a vintage patina to the silver.
METAL CONTENT: Being French, either 800 or 900 silver.
HALLMARKS: One French poincon on the bale denoting silver content/country of manufacture.
SIZE: Pendant measures 15/16" x 1-3/8" (to top of bale NOT jump ring). Chain measures 10".
WEIGHT: 5.8 grams combined
FINAL COMMENTS: Leave on the chain or place the medal on a charm bracelet. Lots of possibilities with this religious piece!
