This exquisite, Art Deco, French medal or charm shows St Anthony of Padua holding the Christ Child, a popular image of the saint. The medal is hallmarked for 800-900 silver quality. I am dating this medal to circa 1920-1930.

Saint Anthony of Padua (1195 – 13 June),[1] also known as Anthony of Lisbon, was a Portuguese Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order. He was born and raised by a wealthy family in Lisbon, Portugal, and died in Padua, Italy. He was noted by his contemporaries for his forceful preaching, detailed knowledge of scripture, and devotion to the poor and the sick. He is also the patron saint of finding things or lost people.

The medal measures 9/16” (1.5cms) across and weighs 2.1 grams.

On the front is a finely sculpted image of Anthony and the Christ Child who touches his face. Their features are very delicately executed. At the base is inscribed ‘France’ , I can detect a faint signature on the left. It may be 'Karo'.

At the top is a ring and a bail for a chain. The ring bears the French crab hallmark for 800-900 silver quality.

The reverse is plain for your own engraving.

In fine vintage condition, this lovely medal is sure to please. It will arrive in a gift box.
