ART DECO French 18K Gold Filled Pendant - Saint Christopher Medal - ORIA
Welcome to Robins Nest Midwest. May I offer....
AGE: C.1920 or so - Art Deco period
ITEM: This particular offering of mine came straight off a "sample sheet" of medals that a salesman would have carried with him to show to potential jewelry dealers. The religious charm/religious medal offered here is a lovely depiction of Saint Christopher/St Christopher, Patron Saint of Travelers. Plain back. Front coloring is more of a slightly rose gold hue than yellow - just gorgeous!
CONDITION: Overall, just perfect!
METAL CONTENT: 18K Gold Filled Content.
HALLMARKS: ORIA on the bale. Note: Oria is a mark similar to the French trade name FIX. Both makers specialised in heavy gold filled jewellery which would deceive an onlooker into believing it was genuine gold through and through. The metal, and top "bloom" of gold, make the piece practically perfect, hardly EVER showing wear due to its thickness and durability.
SIZE: Medal, without bale or jump ring, measures 3/4" approx high/wide.
WEIGHT: A healthy 2.1 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: One of 3 French Gold Filled Saint Christopher Medals I currently have on offer.
