This is a magnificent antique crucifix. It is elegant with a highly detailed corpus on an impressively embellished cross. The cross is etched with a beautiful floral motif along the arms, each of which is capped with fleur de lis, representing the Trinity. The base is rectangular with what we believe is an image of a pelican feeding her young (the image has lost definition with age).
The pelican symbol is based on an ancient legend that a pelican will strike her breast to feed her young from her own blood in times of scarcity. This image has long been used as a symbol of Christ the Redeemer shedding His Blood for us.
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 an elegant vintage religious pendant and brooch. It is an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in profile. Our Lady is covered in a stunning veil that flows softly around her face and across her shoulders. The artist’s skill can be seen in the delicate lines in the folds of her robe and veil and in her sorrowful expression. It is housed in a silver frame with softly fluted edges. Beautiful.
The reverse is marked 800 silver. There is a bar pin for the brooch but it also has a jump ring to wear it as a pendant.
