This most beautiful, double sided French medal is silver plated but it might have some small silver content. You would be hard pressed to distinguish it from solid silver. I am dating it to the Art Deco period. On one side is the Virgin and Child and on the other Jesus.
The oval medal measures 1 and 3/16” (3cms) long, including the ring, by ¾” (1.9cms) across.
On one side is a truly exquisitely sculpted image of the crowned Virgin and Child Jesus. The virgin’s halo of stars extends into the plain border. This is inscribed in Latin ‘Virgo Carmeli’ – Virgin of Carmel and ‘Ora Pro Nobis’ – Pray for us.
At the top is a delicately shaped ring and a bail to hold a chain.
On the reverse is a raised image of Jesus, indicating His Sacred Heart. Again it is beautifully sculpted.
In fine vintage condition, this lovely medal will arrive in a gift box.
