This is a lovely French Communion medal with a difference. It appears to be dedicated to The Virgin Mary and the clergy . It is made of 800-900 silver and is signed on the edge. It is difficult to establish its date but my best guess is circa the 1930’s.

The oval medal measures 1¼” (3.2cms) long, including the ring, by 7/8” (2.2cms). It weighs 6.5 grams.

On the front is a wonderful and very different image of the Virgin Mary and Child Jesus. The difference is that she is holding a Communion Chalice. Around the edge is an inscription in French – ‘O Mary Queen of the Clergy Pray for Us’.

At the top is a ring with various unidentifiable hallmarks. There is also a bail for a chain. On the side there is a mark ’argent’ for silver .

On the reverse is a raised Communion Chalice. Around the edge is a further inscription in French which says ‘O Jesus Host by the Immaculate Mary Make us Pure and Strong’.

This very rare medal is in fine condition and will arrive in a gift box.
