Art Nouveau Enamel Medal
Heritagem presents :
A unique French medal. This oval 18kt gold pendant is a beautiful piece of the early 20th century. It shows a woman saint carrying a lily, symbol of purity. This flower is also strongly linked with Mary, mother of Christ. The woman stands on a cloister, with a blue sky, made of blue enamel with the Plique a Jour technique. How refined is this one !
The back was engraved into a beautiful cursive letter: 1re Comon Jenny Caulier 20 Mai 1926. The medal was probably made at the very beginning of the 20th century during the Art Nouveau period, and then engraved for the First Communion of Jenny. The medal was signed on the left bottom : POL. MASSET. The bale is controlled with the French eagle’s head. This medal is absolutely ravishing and it is in good antique condition. The left band of blue enamel features a little chip on the front and on the back, however the others bands are intact.
The medal weighs 3,6 gr and it measures 47,56 (1,47) x 12,50 (0,49) mm (inch.).
