This small but beautiful early Art Deco, silver medal or charm is French. It is signed by the celebrated French engraver, Emile Dropsy (1858-1923). I am dating this medal to 1920-1922 so it now counts as antique.

The medal measures 7/8” (2.4cms) long, including the top ring, by 11’16” (1.7cms) across. It weighs 2.8 grams.

Within a typically deco, angular frame is the most exquisitely sculpted , raised image of Our Lady. In profile, she looks downwards with a sorrowful yet beautiful expression. To the left is the signature ‘E Dropsy’.

At the top is an angular ring and a bail. The ring bears various marks which are too worn to read clearly. One is possibly the crab mark but in any case I have tested the medal to 800 silver quality.

The back is blank for an inscription.

This very rare and wonderful medal by a premier French engraver comes to you tissue wrapped in a gift box.
