This is a wonderful vintage devotional piece. It is an image of a young Virgin Mary. Our lady is gracefully poised with her head slightly bowed and her palms together in prayer. Interestingly, she is shown veiled with her hair in a long braid and decorative polka dots on her gown! Absolutely charming.

This is a stunning antique religious plaque. It is a bas-relief image of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden being expelled by an angel. It depicts an intense moment as Adam and Eve cower in shame while the angel announces their punishment. The piece is intricately detailed with the lush foliage of the Garden giving it a feeling of movement and immediacy. Magnificent.
This is a unique vintage holy water font. It is a high relief image of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Lady is shown wearing a baroque style veil with intricate detailing. The central image is a copper medallion signed by the artist. The medallion is on a painted wood background with font bowl of faceted glass. Beautiful.
This is a poignant work of art. It is an image of Jesus wearing just before His crucifixion. His expression is profoundly sorrowful as blood drips from the Crown of Thorns. ... “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
The bust is beautifully detailed and has a rich, burnished finish. We believe this is spelter with a bronze finish. It rests on an elegant metal base.
This is a beautiful vintage religious statue. It is a figure of the Blessed Virgin Mary holding the infant Christ. Our Lady has refined features and is shown wearing voluminous robes with beautiful flowing lines. Our Lord has His arms around her neck and has a handful of her hair in one hand, typical of any child! So Sweet.
The piece is unpainted chalkware with the makers mark on the base reading: “Original Dolfi, Made in Italy”
This is a stunning vintage religious icon. It is an image of John the Baptist. He is shown wearing his hair shirt covered in a blue/green cloak. He has large red wings, symbolizing his role as a messenger, and he his holding his severed head in one arm. Both heads have radiant gold halos that shimmer in the light. The banner St John is holding reads: “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand”. Wonderful.
This is a remarkable antique religious print. It is a large image of Saint Brigid of Kildare. She is shown wearing a black and white habit and holding a book. She is walking a path through a verdant green field with a cow and building, likely a monastery, in the background.
Saint Brigid lived in Ireland c. 451 – 525. She was a disciple of Saint Patrick’s and was known for her love of the poor. Many of her acts of charity involved the provision of milk, butter, or even cattle to poor people who sought her help. Saint Brigid was the foundress of several monasteries including the well known monastery of Kildare. She is the patron saint of Ireland, poets, dairymaids, blacksmiths, healers, cattle, fugitives, Irish nuns, midwives, and new-born babies. Feast Day: February 1.

This is a wonderful vintage religious statue. It shows three chubby monks in sandals and dark grey habits. Two are holding books while the other has a scroll. All three have their faces raised in joyous adoration. Their profound happiness will brighten your day!
This is a beautiful vintage piece of religious art. It is a print of the 12th century “Icon of the Transfiguration” currently in the Louvre Museum collections.
In this piece Christ is the centre and focus of the image, his hand held in a blessing, eyes directed at us. His clothes are depicted “white as light” as the Gospel writers describe, and the glory of God overshadowing the scene is shown by the mandorla around his body. From His body, shafts of light are shown striking each of the five others present: to Christ’s right, the Prophet Elijah; to His left Moses; scattered about His feet, the Apostles John, Peter, and James.
The mosaic captures the drama of the event: the three Apostles on their faces in confusion, whilst Christ stands serenely in the centre above them, flanked by Moses and Elijah, who appear to be blessing Him. (Iconreader)
Please Note: This piece is a framed print on board without glass.
Condition: The reverse contains a personalized note. Please See Pictures
This is a beautiful example of mid century religious art. It is an elegant image of the Blessed Virgin Mary holding a young Christ in her arms. Our Lady is gazing down at the Infant Jesus as He sleeps. The artist’s skill can be seen in the design of the piece. The figures flow into each other creating a sense of movement like the rocking of a cradle. Wonderful!
