Here is a beautiful, gold filled, double sided religious medal charm marked ‘Fix’, a mark founded in 1823 with a secret formula for this type of 18 carat thickly gold filled jewellery. It is signed on one side by the celebrated French engraver, Emile Dropsy (1858-1923). I am dating it to circa 1910.
It measures 9/16" (1.5cms) across.
On one side is an exquisite image of the crowned Virgin and Child with cherub heads around her. On the other side is an image of Jesus with his Sacred Heart. At lower right is the signature ‘E Dropsy’.
The surround is pierced and a ring is integrated in the top. The bail is marked ‘FIX’.
This charming medal is in fine antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
