This is a rare, large, highly stylized medallion by French artist Denis Fernand Py. He was a French metal artist famous for his religious works. Many French churches display his work. This is an original and not a reproduction and has the name "PY" engraved on the piece. It also has 2 makers marks stamped on it that I can't seem to read, (although I can make out the cross on it and what looks to say "Meir"). One on the actual piece and one on the hanger. I believe it is bronze with a heavy sterling silver plating. It is just under 2.5 inches in diameter and weighs 98g (3.5oz). It is in great vintage condition with only minimal wear and surface scratches on the back. It also has a great antique patina.
