Details

This vintage, Miraculous Medal Sacramental is in stunning condition for its age and features a warm patina that both perfectly accents the details of the piece, as well as offering a wonderful contrast to the reflective glow of it's solid sterling silver construction!

This unusual and revered Miraculous Medal Sacramental is presented in an eartop, French base shield form with a highly detailed border consisting of a crown of pilots wings and floral, Art Deco accents. Contained within the border is the image of Mary's apparition to Saint Catherine Labouré of France in 1830. The Blessed Mother is presented with her arms outstretched and is crowned with a halo and has divine light emanating from her hands. The image of Mary is wreathed in the words: " O Mary Conceived Without Sin Pray For Us Who Have Recourse To Thee".

The reverse side of the pendant features an image of the Cross above a capital m - which symbolizes the Blessed mother attending Jesus at the foot of the cross. Below this depictions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This is then encircled with a wreath of 12 stars. The piece is also marked "Sterling".

This piece has most of the detail worn off of the Madonna's face - suggesting that is was held in pray often.

According to the teaching of the Catholic Church, the use of Sacramentals such as this medal prepares people to receive grace and disposes them to cooperate with it. Additionally, This Sacramental is attributed the patronage of: Special Graces, Architects, Miners & Prisoners.

It can be hard to attach these Sacramentals to a specific date as pieces like this have been made since the early 1830's and are currently still being produced today. However, Judging by the overall design, wear & patina I would date this piece to being from the early to mid 20th century and was most likely produced sometime around 1940 - possibly being a wartime example.
