This charming silver and enamel pendant celebrates Our Lady of Lourdes. It is unmarked but tests as 800-900 silver quality. It is difficult to date but my best guess would be circa the 1930’s.
The oval pendant measures 1 and 1/16” (2.8cms) long, including the ring at the top, by 11/16” (1.7cms) across the centre. It weighs 3.2 grams.
A raised image of Mary as she appeared at Lourdes is set against a lightly textured background. The surround is turquoise enamel , elegantly contoured to simulate the grotto.
At the top is a ring and a rather worn bail.
On the reverse is a spray of lilies and the inscription ‘ND de Lourdes PPN’ – Our Lady of Lourdes Pray for Us.
This very unusual pendant is in fine vintage condition with all the enamel intact. It will arrive in a gift box.
