From France and dating to the early 1900s or so, here's an oval silverplate/silver plate medal/pendant with the Holy Virgin Mary & Infant Jesus to the front in sort of a strange position - it seems they are sitting on a house! And at the bottom? Well, a pair of angels. The wording to the front reads "N.D. de Lorette, Priez Pour Nous". The back shows the Cathedral itself in Paris, France. The wording on this side reads "Chapelle de Lorette Pres Bellac."
Condition is very nice - quite shiny - hence my photos not being as crisp as they should be - MUCH better looking in person!
Metal Content appears to be Silver plate - Silverplate. No hallmarks.
Size is 13/16" wide x 1" high (not including the bale)
Weight is 4.4 grams - a nice bit of metal, not flimsy thin!
The Church Notre-Dame-de-Lorette is a neoclassical church in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. Construction of the church began in 1823 under the reign of Louis XVIII and was completed in 1836 under the reign of Louis-Philippe. Two notable figures in French culture were baptized at Notre-Dame-de-Lorette. Musician Georges Bizet received his baptism at the church on March 16, 1840, while painter Claude Monet was baptized on May 20, 1841.
