Info Wanted: French Music Medal??


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

A friend has brought me an old silver medal about two inches around.

 

The front shows a woman in classical dress, seated with a lyre (no front inscription)

 

The back does have an inscription...

 

Around outer edge:

Hommage Du Bon Ladoucette Depute

 

Centered:

Ardennes Chateau Porcier

De 11 Juliet

Societe De Musicale De

1869

 

Anyone have any clue what this medal was for? I can see it was about some "musical society" but that's about it.

 

Any info would be appreciated!

 

Thanks,

 

Will

These are usually prize medals given to students. If it's silver, there should be an edge mark --can you see it?

 

Château-Porcien is a commune in the Ardennes. Eugène de Ladoucette was a député from the Ardennes between 1852 and 1877. link
