Vintage FRENCH Gold Filled Medal or Charm - Saint Theresa
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1940 or so
ITEM: From France, a small round, yellow gold filled medal, charm or pendant depicting Saint Theresa to the front and the Cathedral at Lisieux to the back. Original jump ring is still attached.
CONDITION: Very nice with the usual look of age - slight wear to the nose (more noticeable in the pics than with the naked eye). Most likely presented on a young girls First Communion.
HALLMARKS: On the bale, one partial mark that I cannot make out as well as the word ULTRA.
METAL CONTENT: French Gold Filled items were of a metal combination that had the look/appearance of 18K gold with a rose gold underlay. If the yellow gold became worn, the rose gold underlay would appear giving the piece the most unusual color combination. However, the yellow gold layer was usually so thick that this usually never happened. Gold Filled items were made in France under a variety of names - FIX, ORIA, MURAT were some of the most famous - to be honest, I have never heard of ULTRA before finding this medal.
SIZE: 1/2" high/wide
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to use once more!
