French Arts and Crafts Silvered Brass Large Medal of Jesus and ChildrenFrench Arts and Crafts Silvered Brass Large Medal of Jesus and ChildrenFrench Arts and Crafts Silvered Brass Large Medal of Jesus and Children

This most delightful large French medal shows Jesus blessing children. It is made of silvered brass in the Arts and Crafts style so circa 1900-1910.

The medal measures 1¾”(4.3cms), including the bail, by 1 and 3/8” (3.5cms) across the base. It weighs 14.9 grams.

I think this is a representation of ‘Suffer the little children to come unto me’. The raised and finely sculpted design is of Jesus sitting beneath a tree blessing three children. A woman stands at the back with a babe in arms.

The border of this medal is very attractive with the curving lines of the period.

At the top is a ring and a bail for a chain.

The back is inscribed ‘Archiconfrerie de l’oeuvre des catechismes’ – The arch brotherhood of the work of Sunday Schools’.

In fine antique condition this beautiful medal would make a wonderful addition to a collection. It will arrive in a gift box.
