One of seven lapel badges, circular, embossed gilt metal, fund raiser on Day of the Wounded and Tuberculosed Soldiers of the War, by Lalique, French, 1915-1917

The French inscription, “Pour les blesses de la tuberculose” on the lapel badge translates as “For the wounded from tuberculosis”. The badges were designed by the famous designer of jewellery and glassware, René Lalique (1860-1945).

The lapel badges were made for fundraising on the ‘Day of the Wounded’ and ‘Tuberculosed Soldiers of the War’, events held in France during the First World War.
