Large French Silver Miraculous Medal  1907Large French Silver Miraculous Medal  1907Large French Silver Miraculous Medal  1907Large French Silver Miraculous Medal  1907Large French Silver Miraculous Medal  1907

This beautiful, solid silver, large French medal was awarded in 1907. The front carries a version of the Miraculous Medal, first produced in 1830. It was originated by Saint Catherine Labouré following her vision of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The medal is marked ‘argent’ for silver and I have tested it to at least 900 quality silver.

The medal measures 1 and 11/16” (4.2cms) across. It weighs a substantial 38.6 grams.

On one side is the image of the Virgin Mary that appears on the Miraculous Medal. She is beautifully sculpted and sacred rays emanate from her hands. Her feet are crushing Satan in the form of a serpent. Around the edge is inscribed ‘Paroisse de Sonnac Charente Inférieure’ which is in the west of France.

On the other side is a garland of laurels tied with a ribbon. Within it is inscribed in French that it was the Prize of Honour awarded to Lydie Vigier in the year 1907. We can only guess what Lydie did to deserve this wonderful medal but I’m sure she was very proud of it.

The side of the medal is marked ‘argent’ and there is a diamond shaped maker’s mark.

At the top is a ball ring, just a little battered but solidly holding the bail.

This rare and lovely medal from the Edwardian period is in fine antique condition, with slight signs of age It comes to you tissue wrapped in a gift box.
