Paris Expo Medal 1889, M. Jesurum & Co., Lace Mfgrs. Of Venice, Italy, Xf (z226):
The pictures are of the lot being sold. Here is an interesting 36 mm bronze medal issued as a souvenir of the Paris Exhibition of 1889. I believe the main device is an allegorical rendering of the Lion of St Mark, patron of Venice. It was issued by M. Jesurum & Co., manufacturers of fine lace and embroidery of Venice, Italy. The firm's web site says the company was founded in Venice in 1870 by Michelangelo Jesurum, and from its inception to this day they are leaders in very highend goods. While researching this, I found an identical medal on listed for $250 under "Souvenir Coins Jewish Family M. Jesurum & Co. ...". The medal has just traces of wear and attractive uniform brown color onthe obverse, while the back is multicolored as shown, but could be cleaned with care. We are starting it very low with , so please keep offerding!
