A medal entitled “The only consolation of Irma, an allegory of Madame Royale”.
It features a young woman (Marie Therese Charlotte) standing in the middle of a garden, stroking a dog and holding a crown above an urn placed on a column. On the urn it says: “CENDR / MY / PAREN" (Ashes of my parents).
In the background, you can see the Temple Prison and its’ gardens. The bottom of the column is inscribed with 1793.
