Vintage French STERLING St Anne De Beaupre Detailed Religious Medal
A vintage St Anne De Beaupre religious medal marked France on the back. It is not marked for content but does acid test as high grade silver most likely sterling silver- also the bail seems to have some faded marks that may be punch marks (French silver hallmarks). The medal measures approximately 1 & 1/16ths of an inch tall including the bail. This medal is quite lovely.
St Anne is the mother of the Virgin Mary and the patron saint of carpenters; childless people; equestrians; grandparents; homemakers/housewives; lace makers; lost articles; Detroit; miners; mothers; moving house; old-clothes dealers; poverty; pregnancy; seamstresses; stablemen; and sterility.
