This beautiful ,French, mid nineteenth century pendant is also a reliquary. It tests as 800-900 silver. It does bear a hallmark but it is obscure.
The oval pendant measures 13/16” (2cms) by 9/16” (1.4cms) across. It is 6mms deep.
On the front is a finely sculpted image of the Virgin Mary holding the Child Jesus. In her right hand she holds a rosary. Around the edge is the inscription “ Marie a été Conçue Sans Peché” Mary was conceived without sin.
There is a small ring and a bail to hang from a chain.
On the back is a transparent glassed section with a beaded surround.
I am sure it could be opened but I have not forced it.
This rare antique piece is in fine condition and will arrive in a gift box.
