1871 Commemorative Ring

1,450.00

This ring commemorates the German bombardment of Paris during the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71. It is inscribed TOUS AUX DANGERS TOUS A L'HONNEUR 1870-1871. (Translates to United in danger, united in honour 1870-1871)

The ring is made out of bronzed copper, and was made in France. These rings were mass produced commemorative rings, most likely because of the loss of General Jean Auguste Margueritte, who was mortally wounded in the great cavalry charge at Sedan during that war.
