The last of my vintage and antique Catholic medalions collection, is this beautiful pendant featuring the Holy Mother in especially realistic and beautiful enamelwork.

I purchased this myself at a Vide Grenier in the southwest of France in 2003.

The neckchain it's on is not original to it, but of the same era. Note the strange big brass jump rings? The necklace came to me just like this. It could be converted to smaller sterling rings, or left as is, it's very charming, maybe it was done this way on purpose to make it easier for a child's hands to manage. Note the Art Deco floral clasp.

The pendant measures about 1 inch long including the loop, by just over 3/8 of an inch wide.
The neck-chain is just under 18 inches long total.

Condition wise the pendant is in "good antique" condition. It shows some wear on the front viewed under magnification, with what may be a small chip in the enamel in the lower front left quadrant. I have not polished the metal, as patina is an individual preference and very important to most collectors of antique silver items!

The pendant does test as sterling silver (925 or thereabouts).

I believe this is a Lourdes medal, note the scene of the grotto at the back.

I'll be glad to answer any questions you may have about this lovely old thing, and I hope you have a happy Easter season!
