Wonderful old house blessing plaque for blessings from St Anthony. On the front of the well designed religious art plaque is a very detailed image of this beloved Saint Anthony holding the Infant Jesus, the figures in high relief, and below "St Anthony Pray For Us". The plaque is of a coppery gold color metal of unknown content, with tabs that fold over the cardboard weight backing, all original; and on the back "St Anthony Messenger, the Popular Catholic Monthly, Cincinnati Ohio" indicating this was probably either sold or more likely given out by the publication to its readers. At the bottom "The Metal Arts Co, Rochester NY" which would be the manufacturer and designer of the plaque. It is in good condition, front looks fine, a little water stains on the back only, open loop at top for hanging. It measures 5 & 1/8" tall.
