19th century French Memorial Plaque, in heart shape, made of heavy cast metal with raised lettering. This was originally used as a memorial marker, in memoriam for Jean Blanchard, 1889. This has remnants of blue paint. Beautifully decorative, the raised letters have a dark gris or grey finish, there are two holes in the bottom and the top used for attaching this to a gravestone or wooden door.
Collectible piece of French history, these are wonderful on display with a collection of religious antiques, saints and madonnas, or outdoors in the garden.
