French Cross of Lorraine Locket
Antique silver French Cross of Lorraine locket in sterling silver. The Cross of Lorraine is often associated with Saint Joan of Arc, who was from Lorraine. After the incorporation of a great part of Lorraine to Germany following the 1870 war, the Cross of Lorraine became a symbol of memory and resistance. The front of the loop is stamped with a French silver Tête de Sanglier hallmark. The Tête de Sanglier is a registered French punch mark in the shape of a boar’s head. The locket is hinged at the bottom and has a snap closure at the top.
