Art Nouveau French Communion Medal
This gorgeous and substantial antique French First Communion medallion is quite lovely and a bit larger than most from the Art Nouveau era. The patina is so stunning juxtaposed with the ornate high relief details throughout the medallion. Next to the chalice are wheat and grape leaves. The wheat is symbolic of immortality and resurrection. The reverse side of the medallion features outstanding hand engraved initials which appear to be LC or LL. The medallion is marked on the loop for sterling silver purity.
