Hammer Price:

France, France, a striking bronze medal by Lenoir after F. Rude, undated, high relief bust in Phrygian cap and dressed in armour, possibly intended to represent Liberty, reverse laurel and oak wreath, plain in centre, 50mm. Extremely fine

Although Lenoir (1879-1953) was a French artist this medal may have been struck in Belgium shortly after the end of the First World War
