This is a gorgeous vintage rosary. The beads are a luminescent faux pearl with stunning filigree spacers between the decades. The crucifix has a gold-tone finish with Lucite pearl inlay, while the centerpiece shows Christ with His Sacred Heart on one side and the Madonna and Child on the other.
Condition: The finish is missing in small spots on some of the beads. Please see pictures.
This is a fantastic antique religious painting. It is an image of Saint Martin of Tours in roman armor on horseback. He is shown cutting his cloak off with his sword to give to a poor beggar. Saint Martin is the patron saint of the poor, soldiers, conscientious objectors, tailors, and winemakers. Feast Day: November 11.
Reverse glass painting is an ancient folk art tradition of Bavaria. This piece is likely from the early turn of the century. The frame appears to be original but the backing is more recent.
This is a charming vintage devotional statuette. The piece is a vignette of a young girl kneeling in prayer before a wayside shrine of the Infant of Prague. She has brought a basket full of beautiful flowers to place before the Christ Child. It is darling!
This is a hand painted Lefton china piece titled “ The Lord watches over us”.
This is an amazing antique religious statue. It depicts Christ as a young boy resting on a stone bench. He is wearing a robe with the “IHS” Christogram on His breast. Our Lord is resting His head on one arm while He holds a crown of thorns in His lap. His bare feet peek out from under his long robe. Two white doves watch over Him as He sleeps. It is a moving piece.
Condition: The paint is chipped in one spot on the back of His hair. Please See Pictures.
