C.1910 Religious Card - Paper Lace with Glitter & Aluminum Medal
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1910 or so
ITEM: Found in France, here's a religious card composed of light cardstock which has been embossed (giving the effect of paper lace), colored, glittered and impressed with a chromolithograph of a Saint - sorry, I do not know who he is though I suspect it might be Saint Stanislaus Kostka of Poland. The gentleman carries a spray of lilies and has his hands in prayer. At the top left of the card is an attached aluminum medal featuring the Virgin Mary (O Mary Conceived Without Sin) - on the reverse, a Sacred Heart with the phrase "Sacred Heart of Jesus Protect Us." The medal is attached to the card with a bit of pink floss - this would indicate that this card was presented to a young girl upon her First Communion (the floss could be changed to blue so the card could be presented to a boy).
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot. Clean back which means the card can be presented to a young girl in this day and age.
METAL CONTENT: Aluminum medal
SIZE: 3" x 4-1/2" approx. The medal measures 5/8" across.
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to present once more!
