This beautiful, French Art Nouveau, circa 1900, book marker bears no marks but the top tests as 800-900 silver quality. The rest is probably heavily silver plated. It features the French heroine, Joan of Arc.

It measures 4” (10.3cms) long and 5/8” (1.6cms) across the widest part. It weighs 15.6 grams.

At the top is a disc with a raised image of Joan of Arc in profile. Around her are tiny fleur de lis. Beneath this is a delightful , scrolling motif.
The blade is smooth silver with an overlap to attach to your page. It is inscribed ‘Renée’, a female Christian name.

On the reverse of the disc are the arms of Joan of Arc with the inscription ‘De Par Le Roi Du Ciel’ – By the King of Heaven. It is adorned with lilies . Beneath is the same scrolling motif as on the front. The blade is plain.

This wonderful piece is attractive on many levels – Joan of Arc memorabilia, useful for a reader and a just lovely object to own and handle. In fine antique condition , it will arrive in a gift box.
