This beautiful, French, silver religious pendant dates to circa the 1920’s. It features an image of the Virgin Mary.
The oval pendant measures 1½” (3.7cms) long, including the bail, by 7/8” (2.3cms) across. It weighs 6.2 grams.
In the centre is a lovely, raised image of the Virgin Mary. Rays emanate from behind her. The edge is enhanced with a row of glittering marcasites.
At the top is a squared off ring and a bail set with a single marcasite.
The back is plain with a well. It looks as if originally it might have been covered to hold a lock of hair.
At the base is a lozenge shaped marker’s mark and a crab mark to denote 800-900 silver quality.
This exquisite pendant is in fine vintage, almost antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
