  • Art Deco Travel Crucifix - The Vintage Catholic

    Art Deco Travel Crucifix

    Sold

    Sold
    Sold

    This is a vintage portable devotional. The arched doors open to reveal an attractive Art Deco crucifix. The cross is wood with a lustrous finish, and the corpus is metal. The crucifix rests against red velvet, and the doors are lined in matching silk. The case is marked genuine leather made in France.

    Example of a Prayer before a Crucifix: Behold, O good and most sweet Jesus, I fall upon my knees before Thee, and with most fervent desire beg and beseech Thee that Thou wouldst impress upon my heart a lively sense of faith, hope and charity, true repentance for my sins, and a firm resolve to make amends. And with deep affection and grief, I reflect upon Thy five wounds, having before my eyes that which Thy prophet David spoke about Thee, o good Jesus: "They have pierced my hands and feet, they have counted all my bones." Amen.

    A plenary indulgence, under the usual conditions, may be gained by those who shall say this prayer with devotion before an image of our crucified Redeemer. A partial indulgence may also be gained for each devout recitation.

    Condition: There is a water stain on the case. Please see pictures.

  • Antique Pectoral Crucifix with Memento Mori

    Antique Pectoral Crucifix with Memento Mori

    $120.00

    This is a wonderful antique crucifix.  The corpus, INRI sign, and memento mori beneath Christ’s feet are also metal.  The reverse has an elegant Crown of Thorns at the center of the cross. It is fairly heavy and would have been worn either as a pectoral cross or at the end of a monk’s or nun’s large rosary.


    Skull & Crossbones

    The skull at the base of the cross has several symbolic meanings: Christ’s victory over death; Christ as the New Adam crucified on Golgotha “the Place of the Skull” believed to be where Adam is buried; as well as a memento mori - a reminder of the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell.

  • Antique German Crucifix with Tools of the Passion

    Antique German Crucifix with Tools of the Passion

    $240.00

    This is a wonderfully detailed antique hand-carved crucifix. The cross is carved to look like rough hewn logs and seems to erupt from a patch of reeds growing on a mound of rocks. Above Christ’s head is the INRI, and beneath His feet are the skull & crossbones. Throughout the history of the Church, the skull & crossbones symbol has had several meanings: Christ’s victory over death, Christ as the New Adam crucified on Golgotha “the Place of the Skull”, and as a memento mori – a reminder of death and the Four Last Things.

    Behind the cross can be seen four of the tools associated with Our Lord’s Passion known as the Arma Christi:

    The Reed – which was mockingly placed in Jesus' hand as a scepter.
    The Ladder – used for the Deposition, i.e. the removal of Christ's body from the cross for burial.
    The Holy Lance – with which a Roman soldier inflicted the final of the Five Wounds in Jesus' side.
    The Holy Sponge – set on a reed, with which gall and vinegar were offered to Jesus.

     

     

    Condition: One arm of the skull & crossbones is missing. Please see pictures.

    Dimensions: Crucifix – 17” tall x 7” wide; Base – 4.75” wide x 4” deep

    Shipping: $25

  • Vintage Tabletop Wayside Crucifix

    Vintage Tabletop Wayside Crucifix

    $62.00

    This is an amazing vintage crucifix for home devotions. It is designed to look like the ancient wayside crosses still commonly found in the European countryside. There are two steps leading to a bench or altar at the foot of the cross. The crucifix and altar are sheltered under an A-framed roof with small rocks as roof snow guards. These crosses have been erected over the centuries as way-markers and as memorials. They were popular stopping points for rest and prayer used by travelers on pilgrimage.  


    The entire piece is hand-carved wood with a gray plastic corpus. 


    Dimensions: 8” tall on a 4” x 2.5” base

  • Crucifix Last Rites Set

    Sold

    Sold

    This is an elegant vintage sick call set for the home. It includes a beautiful, gold-painted corpus on a wood cross. The crucifix opens to reveal a box that contains the items needed for the priest’s visit. This set contains a petite holy water bottle, two unused wax candles and instructions. There are two candleholders and a slot for standing the crucifix upright, making this a complete home altar.
