In 1920, the priest-dean of Halle decided to have a plaque made by Frantz Vermeylen, a local artist, in honour of the pilgrimage to Our Lady of Halle. It was produced both in this form, as a small token, and in the form of pendants. The latter were usually sold as religious keepsakes at pilgrimage sites, as was the case at Scherpenheuvel or Oostakker-Lourdes. The image depicts a Mary with child on a throne. Two winged angels hold the canopy aside. The Salvator Mundi is depicted on the reverse.
