This French cast iron with white enamel and black lettering plaque in a heart shape was placed at the gravesite of Lucienne Maillet, the spouse of David; Lucienne lived from 1904 until 1941. Her son Paul David, born in 1935 and died in 1956, was laid to rest with his mother. Plaques like this one often end up in France at a brocante/flea market when the lease on the gravesite (land owned by the French government) is no longer paid for by the family. This plaque was made by the "Masion Amourette, located in Amiens" as noted on the fronto edge. We have cleaned off the decades of dirt and rust; it now has a lovely patina. The backside has surface rust from the decades of weather. Today memorial plaques are highly collectible (and very difficult to source from France); lovely displayed on a wall in a grouping or on a table or basket in a vignette. 

Measures 9.5 inches tall and 9.5 inches wide.
