Victorian Notre Dame de Montaigue Wall Plate

$45.00

This is an interesting antique decorative plate for home devotions. It is an image of Archduke Albert and his wife Isabella kneeling beneath a Madonna & Child figure in a tree. This is a famous vignette of Notre Dame de Montaigu, of whom the nobility of the day were known patrons and devotees.

Notre Dame de Montaigu, also known as Our Lady Under the Tree, originated with a shepherd who found a small statue of the Madonna at the base of a tree. He tried to remove it but could not leave and had to be rescued. Only when the statue was replaced in the oak tree could he be released. The location became a site of pilgrimage almost immediately and many miracles are associated with it. In her honor, the archduke built the Basilica of Our Lady of Scherpenheuvel, considered the most popular shrine in Belgium
