Antique French Religous Relic Golden Metal Paste Griffon Dragon Crown

A wonderful antique decorative French miniature crown that would have originally adorned a church statue. The crown is set with beautiful paste stones with griffon dragons embellishing each side. The crown is finished with an adjustable back.
Written on the inside band of the crown is the mark ‘A P. Eglise de Pierry’which I have traced to the church of Saint-Julien de Pierry, situated in Pierry in the Champagne-Ardenne region of France where the crown would have originally come from.
I have also found an old photograph of inside the church where you can faintly see the statues that this crown would have most probably adorned at one point.

- The crown is in good antique condition.

Inside Circumference - 14 inches
Date - 1800s
