This is a lovely vintage bar pin. At the center is an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary as she appeared in Banneux, Belgium. The metal icon shows the Madonna standing with her hands folded in prayer with Mariette Beco kneeling before her.
In 1933 the Madonna appeared eight times to 12-year-old Mariette Bero. Our Lady is reported to have stated:
“I am the Virgin of the Poor” “I am the Mother of the Savior, the Mother of God” “Pray hard”
The apparitions at Banneux were officially approved by the Catholic Church in 1949.
This is a rare antique religious pin. It portrays the Blessed Virgin Mary holding a young Jesus. The figures are magnificently detailed showing the soft folds of Our Lady’s gowns, the chubby cheeks of the Christ Child, and their very subtle halos. The figures are framed as if this were a Baroque painting. Fantastic.

The Apparition at Lourdes
On February 11, 1858, a 14-year-old girl named Bernadette Soubirous witnessed the first of 18 visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary at a grotto near Lourdes, France. Soubirous described the lady as wearing a white dress, an equally white veil, a blue belt, and a yellow rose on each foot. Across her arm she carried a rosary.
In her messages at Lourdes, Our Lady announced that she is the Immaculate Conception, and she stressed the need for penance and for prayer for sinners.
