This is a special antique religious find. It is simple and elegant with the Miraculous Medal image of Our Lady on above the rosary ring. These were worn by some Catholic religious orders as part of their distinct habits. The clip slides over a wide leather belt and the long 15 decade rosary is hung from the ring.
This is a unique religious devotional brooch. The center is a petite image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in profile enameled in beautiful bright blue. This medal is framed in pearly lucite on a gold finished background. Gorgeous!
This is a gorgeous vintage rosary. The beads are delicate ovals made of luminous mother of pearl. The centerpiece is hexagonal with an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in profile. The crucifix is very elegant and includes roses carved into the cross behind the corpus. “France” is printed on the reverse of the crucifix.
This is a fantastic antique religious collector’s piece. It is a stunning bell with a figure of the Blessed Virgin Mary above three scenes from Lourdes. The images are: the Basilica of Lourdes, a vignette of Bernadette in the Grotto, and Our Lady as the Immaculate Conception. The images are richly colored and have iridescent highlights. Gorgeous!
This piece is a soft metal with a brass finish on a marble base and is bent in some places. The spring for the clapper is still tight and functions perfectly. The bell tone, however, is a dull thud. We assume the bell can be easily repaired or replaced. Please see photos.

Our Lord is wearing beautiful pastel robes and carrying a large bouquet of lilies, representing purity. Printed beneath the image is a line from the Song of Solomon (in French) - “I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine: He feedeth among the lilies.”
