Lovely older large medal for St Rose of Lima and Jesus and His Sacred Heart. On the front a fabulous image of this beloved Saint Rose with her crucifix and halo, surrounded by " St Rose Of Lima Pray For Us" and the artist signature below "F. Koch".On the reverse side a nicely detailed image of Jesus and His Sacred Heart, surrounded by "Sweet Heart of Jesus Have Mercy on Us". The images on both sides are in high relief, and the medal measures 1" tall including the loop but not the attached bale. It is cast of a silver metal that is thick aluminum or something similar, and in good condition; having been in our personal collection for many years. St Rose of Lima is the patroness of South America, West Indies, Philippines, Latin America, Lima Peru, Needle workers, India, Central America and gardeners to name a few. She was canonized in 1671. She was considered a mystic and visionary with invisible stigmata, and a Dominican Tertiary, and the first Saint born in the Americas.
