French Saint Lucy Medal

US$225.00
Rare and beautiful vintage French Saint Lucy (Lucia) medal. The medallion features an ethereal depiction of the beloved St Lucia with a palm and eyes on a plate. In the background is the Holy Cross. She is known as the bearer of light in the darkness of winter, her feast day being 13 December. Because some versions of her story relate that her eyes were removed, either by herself or by her Roman persecutors, she is the patron saint of the blind. The palm is symbolic of her victory over evil.

The medal measures .70" x .90" (including the loop and bail)

Weight - 2.65 grams

Circa - 1940 - 1950s

Composed of 18K gold plated silver (punchmarked on the reverse)
