This beautiful French book pendant or charm dates to circa 1910. It is made of silver plated metal and contains scenes from Lourdes.
It was in 1858 that Our Lady appeared to Bernadette in the grotto at Lourdes. This book was a souvenir for pilgrims to Lourdes.
The book measures 1” (2.5cms) by ¾” (1.9cms).
On the front is An oval with a sculpted image of the scene in the grotto at Lourdes. Around it are the words ‘Souvenir de Lourdes’. At the top is a ring and a bail. The book is hinged and at the side is a little catch to secure the book.
Inside there are seven black and white photographs of scenes at Lourdes. They are in remarkably good condition. (There should be eight but there is one blank space).
On the reverse is a beautiful raised image of Our Lady. Above her head are the words ‘Je Suis L’Immaculée Conception’ – I am the Immaculate Conception.
This beautiful antique piece can be worn as a pendant or as a charm. It is in wonderful condition for its age. It will arrive in a gift box.
