The name Christopher translates as 'Christ-bearer'. The Saint who bears this name was known to be a huge man, seven and a half feet tall with broad shoulders and a fearsome face. He was converted to Christianity by a hermit who told him that the best way to serve Christ would be to help others, so he set to assisting travelers in safely crossing a deadly river. One day, it is said, that he helped a child across the river, which was high and swollen with rain. The child seemed heavier than he could bear, but eventually he did get him to to the other side. When he questioned the child about his extreme weight the child said simply "I am Christ your king, whom you are serving by the work" and then vanished.
This St. Christopher medallion is certainly meant to see your safe on your way. It shows the Saint with the Christ child on his shoulder within a frame of gold with strong Art Deco lines. This wonderful medal is crafted in 18 karat gold and bears French hallmarks. The pendant measures 24.5 mm from top to bottom and 15.4 mm across, it was likely made around 1930 and weighs 3 grams. The back is inscribed with the name ’Nicolas’.
