This charming, Art Deco French medal commemorates St. Odile of France. It bears the signature of the artist and sculptor, (Louise) Aline Lauth-Bossert (1869-1955). It is made of bronze.

St Odile (660-720) of Alsace , France, was born blind. Her father, Duke of Alsace, flew into a rage because of her disability and her mother had to hide her from harm. At the age of 12 she was baptised and miraculously regained her sight. Eventually after much tribulation she was reconciled with her father. She led a holy life and became an abbess.

The rectangular medal measures 1” (2.5cms) by 5/8” (1.5cms) and weighs 4.1 grams.

In the centre is a raised image of Odile with her crozier and holy book. The base is inscribed ‘Sainte Odile’. Down the left hand side is the artist’s signature ‘Aline Lauth-Bossert’.

At the top is a ring and a bail. The back is blank for an engraving.

In excellent vintage condition, this beautiful piece will arrive in a gift box.
