Art Deco FRENCH Silverplate Award Medal/Pendant - The Runners!
Art Deco FRENCH Silverplate Award Medal/Pendant - The Runners
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C,1920 or so
ITEM: From France, here's an Art Deco era silverplate - silver tone medal that might have been an award or participation medal during a sports event - in this case, running. Whether short distance or long distance, I know not.
CONDITION: Very nice with a mellow patina to the silver. When found, the piece was completely black - a light polish yielded the perfect look.
METAL CONTENT: I am stating silverplate but there has to be a bit of silver in this piece as it tarnished as all silver tarnishes.
HALLMARKS: No marks per se - at the back of the pendant it reads "Offert par le Ledauphine Eibere." Hmm, the first 2 words translate to "Offered By" so this might actually be a salesman's sample medal.
SIZE: From top to bottom (not including the jump ring) measures 1-1/2"; width is 15/16".
WEIGHT: 7.4 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Just needs the right chain - mine is for display purposes only.
