This French medal cross bears a hallmark for 800-900 silver quality. I am dating it to the early 20th century.
It measures 1 and 3/16” (3.1cms) across and weighs 4.4 grams.
On the front is a beautiful, raised image of the Virgin Mary, Above her head is a halo emanating rays and on either side delicate lily flowers. Around the edge is a gothic style frame.
At the top is a solid ring and a bail. The ring bears the boar’s head French hallmark for 800-900 silver quality. The back is blank for an engraving.
This lovely cross is in fine condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
