Maurice Delannoy La Grace Art Deco silvered metal medal on bakelite

I love this plaque which makes a great pair with the other one that is on the site. The round silvered metal medal is by Maurice Delannoy and depicts a woman in profile in the foreground with a gazelle behind her. The medal is signed "M Delannoy." and is fastened to a rectangular chestnut coloured bakelite plaque that has the words "La Grace" embossed below the plaque and the words "Edite par La Gerbe d'Or Paris". The bakelite plaque has a triangular metal hook on the rear to enable it to be hung on the wall.
I think that this plaque was promotion material for La Gerbe d'Or which was a jewellery shop in Paris.

Approximate dimensions:
Weight: 1.7ozs - 47gms
Dimensions: 3.93ins x 3.27ins x 0.39ins - 10cms x 8.3cms x 1cm
