This wonderful, French sculptural medal of Jesus is silver plated. I am dating it to circa 1910-1920.
It measures ¾” (2cms) across and weighs 3.1 grams.
On the front is an exquisitely sculpted head of Jesus with his crown of thorns.The agony is etched on his features. At lower right is a signature ‘G D’ . There is , however, another signature 'Desvergnes' on the left.
At the top is a ring and a bail for a chain.
On the reverse is a spray of lilies and a rose. Alongside is a blank space for an engraving.
To the naked eye you would never know it was plated and it totally deceived me at first. It will arrive in a gift box.
