Vintage Sterling Silver Ex-Voto from Italy

Sold

A repoussé milagro (miracle) or ex-voto piece from Italy, circa 1945. This milagro is made of sterling silver, making it a rare and special piece. A milagro like this one, representing a young man was frequently left in sacred sites or churches, perhaps as a petition to find a husband, or a fiancé. Milagros form part of a religious rite that involves offering a symbol to a Saint; ex-voto symbols are often body parts, but each offering is individualized, or unique. In some cases, a figure like this might be used for assistance in employment- the well suited man could be used as a symbol of wealth and fortune. The ex-votos remain in the church as long as the site exists. This piece comes from a collection of 12 other milagros, all originally from Italy made in silver plated brass, or copper, or silver. Please take a look at other items in the store to view the variety. They make beautiful decorative wall items for the home, each one with unique characteristics; they work well as a group or as a detail in the home. They are light and very thin. Each one is ready to hang. This milagro measures 8.5 inches tall by 3 inches wide, and is in great condition.
