This magnificent antique religious print depicts Saint Catherine of Alexandria holding a martyrs palm and gazing toward heaven. Catherine was an early Christian martyr who, at the age of 18, famously debated pagan philosophers who were attempting to refute her arguments for Christianity. She won the debate and converted many of her adversaries, who were then immediately martyred. During her subsequent imprisonment, more than 200 people visited Saint Catherine and were also converted. She was beheaded by Emperor Maxentius in 305 AD. Her feast day is November 25.
The engraving is likely from the 1800s, but it is now housed in a modern frame.
This is a fantastic vintage icon. It is an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary as she appeared to Juan Diego in Mexico, 1531. The Madonna is shown with her head slightly bowed and her hands clasped in prayer.
This piece has a wooden base while the icon is a print with a heavy silvered metal overlay.
Condition: The hanger is bent. 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. The pair are shown nearly cheek to cheek with their beautiful halo overlapping.
We believe this pewter, although there is no makers mark. The metal sculpture is set against a cream colored background in a wooden frame. Unique.
This is a magnificent vintage print. It is the interior of the Church of St. Baron in Ghent, Belgium. The stunning high altar is the focal point with light streaming through upper windows illuminating the statuary and side altars. A man is shown kneeling in prayer in the foreground. Wonderful.
This is a stunning vintage station likely once used in a church. The scene shows Jesus on His knees while Simon the Cyrenian helps lift some of the weight. Behind Simon is a member of the Sanhedrin wearing rich robes and jewels. He is pointing at Simon forcing him to help Our Lord.
The colors of the lithograph are still vibrant particularly Christ’s Halo and red robes.
Please Note: There is no protective glass and the both the frame and lithograph have a few scratches. The most noticeable scratch is along Christ’s hand. The roman numeral for this station is also missing. Please See Pictures.
