Up For Consideration...
Here is a very nice old commemorative medal,in quite splendid condition overall
Measuring Approx. 1 & 9/16" across.
This attractive and well-made English patriotic piece shows just light wear, and it has good color, made of a white metal, with a cast appearance to it. Some light marks and tiny imperfections are nothing overly distracting.
I believe this to be from the Thomason Medallic royal set of medals issued about 1820, replicating the early Dassier set of medals of English Kings and Queens originally struck in 1731 by Jean Dassier.
King Stephen spent much of his reign battling the popular (at times) Empress Maude or Matilda. My reference gives his birth as seven years earlier than the medal.
The obverse pictures the monarch wearing a cuirass and ornate helmet, and he faces left, with "Stephanus D. G. Angliae Rex" around the portrait, followed by a tiny reversed "J.D."
The reverse pictures a huge monument with a reclining angel-like figure at the top, and a pair of panels illustrate a battle scene as well as one of a seated king refusing a supplicant.
Two figures are at the left, one with a walking stick, and there is a tree at the right, and beneath all is
"Nat. 1105. - Cor. 1133 - Mort. 1154."History here!
