This is a beautiful vintage holy card for personal devotions. It is a rendition of the famous Painting of Our Lady of the Rosary, also known as Our Lady of Pompei. The card is a highly detailed image in rich black and white tones.
Our Lady of the Rosary:
The image shows the Blessed Virgin Mary holding a young Christ in her lap. Both have glorious crowns and are surrounded by a halo of stars. Christ and the Madonna are presenting rosaries to Saint Dominic and Saint Catherine of Siena. The original painting is associated with many miracles and can bee seen at the Pontifical Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of the Rosary of Pompei, Italy (the modern city near the ancient ruins of Pompeii).
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.
