This is a stunning vintage religious statue for home devotions. It is a figure of Christ pointing to His exposed Sacred Heart. He is wearing voluminous robes painted rich red and pale green. His expression is that of great sorrow. Very moving.
The image of Our Lord’s Heart represents Christ’s love for humanity. It is often depicted flaming, wrapped in thorns, and topped with a cross. The devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, also known as the First Friday Devotions, is rooted in the personal revelations of Christ given to Saint Mary Margaret Alacoque from 17673 -1675.
To those devoted to His Sacred Heart Jesus promised the following:
I will give them all the graces necessary for their state in life.
I will establish peace in their families.
I will comfort them in their trials.
I will be their secure refuge during life, and, above all, in death.
I will shed abundant blessings on all their undertakings
Sinners will find in My Heart an infinite ocean of mercy.
Lukewarm souls will become fervent.
Fervent souls will rapidly grow in holiness and perfection.
I will bless every place where an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.
I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
The names of those who promote this devotion will be written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.
I promise thee, in the excessive mercy of My Heart, that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
This is a remarkable vintage holy water font perfect for a home altar. To one side of the font bowl is a statue of Saint Anthony with a young Jesus snuggled in his arms. The other side is a statue of Saint Therese of Lisieux holding roses and a crucifix. At the base of the font is a votive candle holder. This is a chalkware piece painted a burnished gold. Beautiful.
This is a beautiful vintage devotional wall plaque. The Blessed Virgin Mother is shown holding a young Christ in her arms. Our Lady is looking outward while Jesus is dozing snuggled into her neck. So Sweet.
This is a unique example of devotional folk art. Saint Joseph and the Blessed Virgin Mary are shown gazing down with tenderness at an Infant Christ. Joseph is embracing Our Lady protectively as she steadies the manger holding Our Lord. It is a sweet moment.
This is a wonderful vintage religious statue. Saint Francis is shown gazing toward heaven with one hand raised in a blessing. He is holding a dove in his other palm and a second dove rests on his shoulder. Wonderful.
This is a striking vintage madonna. The Blessed Virgin Mary is shown as a young woman wearing a beautiful veil framing her face with many soft folds. Our lady is elegantly poised with her head slightly bowed, her eyes lowered, and a sweet subtle smile. Wonderful.
This is a gorgeous vintage devotional piece. It is an image of the Last Supper after Vicente Juan Masip, also known as Joan de Joanes. This piece is plaster with a whitewash finish giving the feel of an ancient wall relief. Absolutely beautiful.
This is a beautiful vintage statue of the Holy Family. The three figures are carved from one piece of olive wood reflecting the oneness and unity of family. The Blessed Virgin Mother is holding the infant Christ in her arms while Saint Joseph envelopes them protectively.
The hand-carved wood has a beautiful finish with a subtle luster.
Condition: There is a small crack on the back that appears to be a natural part of the wood. Please see pictures.
This is a wonderful pair of vintage religious statues. They are two hand carved monks at prayer. They both have a rosary at their waist, heavy white beards, and brown habits. One is kneeling while the other is sitting as they read their bibles or perhaps their breviary. Thy are highly detailed and the artist’s skill can be seen in the folds of the robes and the elegance of the lines. Made in Mexico.
Condition: They need to be cleaned.
Dimensions: 8” & 9” tall respectively on a 4” x 4.75” base
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 remarkable pair of vintage religious statues. It is a matching set of figures depicting the Holy Family. The Blessed Virgin Mary is shown holding a young Christ in her arms while standing on a crescent moon. Saint Joseph is shown holding a carpenter’s square in one hand and lilies, symbolizing purity, in the other. Both statues are chalkware painted in rich, vibrant colors.
The statues are set in wooden sconces that can stand alone or hang on the wall. The reverse is marked “Made in Holland”.
Condition: There are some small chips and we believe the paint has been retouched in some places. Please See Pictures.
