This is a striking vintage devotional piece. The Blessed Virgin Mother is shown with one arm draped around a young Christ and her veil enveloping them both. Both figures have their eyes closed as they embrace. It is a sweet moment between mother and child.
This piece is ceramic painted to look like wood. The reverse has the original tag indicating that it was handmade in Germany.
Condition: There is one area along the veil that was only lightly painted. We believe this is original to the piece. Please See Pictures.
This is a magnificent antique religious art print. Saint Rita is shown contemplating a crucifix held gingerly in her hands while an angel holds a crown of thorns above her head. A single small thorn from the crown pierces her forehead. Stunning.
St. Rita (Margherita Lotti) was born in Cascia, Italy in 1381.At the age of 36, following the deaths of her abusive husband and both of her sons, Rita entered an Augustinian convent. She was known for her piety and prayer life, including the partial stigmata of a wound from Christ’s Crown of Thorns. Saint Rita is the patron saint of lost and impossible causes, sickness, wounds, marital problems, abuse, and mothers. Feast day: May 22.
This is a beautiful vintage religious print. It is the iconic scene of Saint Cecilia playing a piano or organ while two chubby angels shower her with flowers. This is a print on board with no glass.
St. Cecilia was a virgin martyr who died in Rome circa 170. Forced to marry a pagan, she was said to have “sung in her heart to the Lord” during the wedding ceremony. Under her influence both her husband and brother-in-law converted and were also martyred for the faith. She is the patron saint of music. Feast day: November 22.
Condition: Both the frame and the print have some scratches. Please See Pictures.
This is a stunning vintage religious print likely from the 1930’s. It shows a sorrowful Christ sitting on a hill crest above the city of Jerusalem. It is a nighttime scene with the city shrouded in blue darkness and the moon peeping through the clouds. Our Lord is contemplative as he gazes into the distance. This print is after the painting by Giovanni, also known as Josef August Untersberger. Wonderful.
This is a sweet vintage religious print perfect for a child’s bedroom. The image shows a beautiful angel hovering near two children. The girl is carrying a basket with one arm wrapped protectively around the younger boy. The angel appears to be watching over them as they cross a dangerous bridge perhaps on their way home. It is very sweet.
