This is a magnificent antique holy water font. The central image is a bas relief of Christ and a young girl with the Eucharist set before them on a table. Our Lord is giving a benediction, gesturing with one hand while the other rests lovingly on her shoulder.
The artist’s signature, “Ruffony”, can be clearly seen above Christ's right shoulder. Ruffony was a well known sculptor who worked in France during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
The metal medallion is mounted on a beautifully embellished wood background. The wood is stained a rich, dark brown with metal inlay and bakelite overlay. It is gorgeous!
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.
