Rare, 117 year old Antique First Communion Medal
Paris, France, 1901, Belle Époque Era
Antique, elegant, and perfectly-preserved 1.03 inch diameter 825 sterling silver relief medal from 1901. This piece has a stunning First Communion chalice with custom engraving: "Raymonde, 23 of May, 1901." The name Raymonde, pronounced "Re-Mond," is a girl's name, the feminine of Raymond, similar to Ramona or Raylinn. The other side is of a young girl holding a candle, with rays of light. The medal was engraved by Félix Rasumny (1869-1940), a renowned medal artist. It is signed on the front F. Rasumny and also initialled A.D. The words argent 950 and M/M are engraved around the rim. There is also the sanglier French silver hallmark. It has some wear from normal devotional use.
The pendant has a .5 inch drop, a rosary bead in blue/grey. The chain is sturdy box cut, and can be adjusted from choker size all the way to 28 inches. It pulls over your head and adjusted by a high-quality silicon ball. It's our most popular chain for larger medals because of its quality and versatility.
