This charming, French silver medal features the child, John the Baptist. I am dating it to circa 1920 - 1930.
It measures 11/16” (1.8cms) across and weighs 2.5 grams.
The image of John the Baptist is raised and beautifully engraved. He is shown in profile with a cross and hands together as if in prayer.
At the top is a ring and a bail. The ring bears a wonderfully clear boar’s head hallmark for 800-900 silver quality. The back is blank for an engraving.
This delightful piece is in fine antique condition and will arrive in a gift box.
