C.1900 FRENCH Religious Brass Star Ornament or Pendant Necklace
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: From France, a religious star ornament that held the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at the center. The center paper was badly damaged so I took out Mary and put in this sweet image of a little girl (Frances Brundage artwork). The star is made of a thin pliable metal, it's brass-copper colored and feels like tin though it could be a thin brass. The green embossed paper is original to the star as is the back cardboard backing. The Brundage image can be replaced with another image, all that's needed is to lift the back tabs and insert another! Oh, and to give the piece a little more color, I added a bit of rayon ribbon to the back loop that closely matches the background paper.
CONDITION: Very nice with a perfect patina of age.
METAL CONTENT: Thin tin? Thin copper? Thin brass?
SIZE: Just the star measures 3" x 2-5/8".
FINAL COMMENTS: A wonderful French item looking for a new home!
