Antique French Cherub and Mother Mary Medal with Watch Chain

US$250.00
A stunning antique Art Nouveau medal duo including a sweet cherub and an Our Lady of Lourdes medal. The medals float from a 12" watch chain. The end ring is stamped with the hallmark Fix for the company well known for producing high quality gold filled jewelry at the turn of the century. Pieces by Fix were often mistaken for solid gold so good is the quality of the gold laminate.

The medallion with cherub features a stunning depiction of The Holy Cross with a single lily (symbolic of purity and devotion). The bail is stamped for material purity which appears to be gold plated. Please examine the photos carefully for the areas of time worn chipping on the front of the medallion (particularly) on the cherub´s head. The reverse also has areas of wear along the border.

The Our Lady of Lourdes medallion is marked for silver purity on bail and features a statuesque image of The Blessed Mother Virgin Mary in the center (please examine the photos closely for the fading of the rose gold plating in the center - as the base material is exposed). On the reverse is an artful engraving of the original recipient´s initials which appear to be "MR". The date May 23, 1926 is inscribed underneath the initials.

- The watch chain length is 12" and the width is 5.5mm. The dog clip and spring bolt are in working order and the overall condition is very good.

-The cherub medal measures .75" x .90" (including the loop and bail)

-The Our Lady of Lourdes medal measures .65" x 1" (including the loop and bail)

Circa 1920s
