Miniature bronze medal with eyelet and stamped brass suspension with a central shield inscribed ‘RF’ (for République Française) on crossed enamel French tricolours, a five-pointed star above, a ribbon below inscribed ‘GLOIRE PATRIE’ (Glory Homeland), a pin to the reverse for wear; the face with head of Marianne, representative of the French Republic, facing right, circumscribed ‘REPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE’; the reverse inscribed ‘SOUVENIR DE LA FÊTE’, a rosette to either side, all within an oak wreath; diameter 17.04mm (0.67 inch); some enamel now absent; on original frayed purple ribbon

The Medal probably dates from the last quarter of the 19th Century and is typical of those found at 14th July celebrations.
