St Georges Medal signed Boivin by Mauboussin
This medal is from the Art Nouveau period in France circa 1900. It features Saint Georges slaying the Dragon. On the verso we can see the representation of a passage of the Bible: Mark 4, 35-41.
The scene takes place on a boat. The apostles are frightened by the storm and the Christ is asleep. The verse in Latin is written all around the sailboat: In Tempestate Securitas, which means: “security in the storm”. There is also the name of Louis and a date 3 mai 1923. The medal is adorned with a beautiful 18k openwork gold crown with flowers and leaves details. The pendant is marked with the French eagle’s head. The centrepiece is made in 18k yellow solid gold and the crown in 18k rose gold.
It is also signed Boivin on the left side and the maker’s mark on the hinge is the one of the jeweller Georges Mauboussin. It is controlled with the French eagle’s head for 18k gold.
