Trésor Bleu Exclusive
Medal origin: France, 1895-1900, engraved 1906
Custom variation of the Miraculous Medal with image of Mary on the front with beautiful rays of heaven coming from her hands. Art Nouveau, heavy 18k gold filled from France. It is marked ‘Titre Fixe’, a mark founded in 1823 with a secret formula for this type of 18 carat gold filled jewelry. The French were masters of the technique of making elegant gold filled jewelry so thick that they never showed signs of wear. The designs and quality are generally so good that they are hard to tell from their solid gold counterparts. The company Bijoux Fix was founded in 1828 and initially items were marked ‘Titre Fixe’ and then just ‘Fix’. So this pendant can be dated to circa 1895- 1900, but actually was engraved in 1906. Despite its age, it still looks new because of the quality. Engraved on the back, "Souvenir du 4 Septembre 1906," or "Memory of the 4th of September, 1906," as the English translation of souvenir is memory, not the American concept of souvenir. It was a Tuesday, so likely a birthday present vs. a Communion or Confirmation gift.
It measures 2.5cms (1”) across in diameter. The Miraculous Medal (French: Médaille miraculeuse), also known as the Medal of Our Lady of Graces, is a devotional medal, the design of which was originated by Saint Catherine Labouré following her apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Rue du Bac, Paris, France. According to the teaching of the Catholic Church, the use of sacramentals such as this medal prepares people to receive grace and miracles. See photos for details. Small cross can be added to medal, here: https://tresorbleu.com/collections/add-ons/products/small-accent-cross
