Circular silver medal with naval anchor suspension; the face with the crowned arms of the town of Elbeuf, laurel and thistles to either side, a caduceus to the left, a cornucopia to the right, a ribbon inscribed ‘TALI FULCIMINE CRESCET’ (With such support she will grow - Elbeuf’s motto since 1588 and a reference to the protection of the Lorraine family, seigneurs of Elbeuf) to the left, a ribbon inscribed ‘TOUT LE MONDE Y TRAVAIL’ (Everyone works here – a phrase attributed to Napoleon Bonapare during his visit to Elbeuf in 1802) to the right, a naval anchor above supporting a full length female figure with haloed head and arms raised, a stormy sea with a sailing ship under lightning bolts to the left, a town with a church, an obelisk and a blazing building to the right, inscribed ‘SAUVER OU PERIR’ (Save or perish) above, signed ‘A. NOEL ROUEN’; the reverse with an engraved attribution effaced (the date 1876 just legible) within a wreath of palm and laurel, circumscribed ‘SOCIÉTÉ HUMANITAIRE DES SAUVETEURS ELBEUF’; silver hallmarks to the edge; on replaced correct ribbon. The town of Elbeuf is on the River Seine to the south of Rouen. This example was in the collection of J. Coolidge Hills, Hartford, Connecticut, U.S.A. before 1913, in the collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, Connecticut, U.S.A. from 1913 to 1967 and in the collection of the American Numismatic Society from 1967 to 2006. An early medal of impeccable provenance.
