French Antiquities

A scattering of French stamps adds a colorful touch to this display.
This vintage Miraculous Medal plaque is made out of brass and has an easel back on it similar to a photo frame.  This allows it to stand upright for display.
My attempt of the translation of this Holy Card is, "O Sweet Virgin Mary, Show your Son to the unbelievers”.  I believe Botticelli to be the artist.  (I am not sure what the “10.” means though.)

This is an old pair of lotus hand carved earrings with screw type backs. They belong to my vintage earring collection.  They are from the Hawaiian Islands.
One of my favorite pink sea urchins sits on a scattering of my vintage French post stamps.  A rose petal  from my roses adds a touch of softness.  The pink edge on the petal compliments the urchin.
Here is a close-up of my Miraculous Medal plaque.  Notice the delicate French border around the frame and the ornate decor on the top and bottom of the plaque.
The “M” at the top of the plaque stands for Mary, and the interleaving of her initial and the cross is said to represent Mary’s close involvement with her Son, Jesus.
During a holiday to Victoria BC, I purchased this “Coral Stationary”.  The box is lovely and I would have paid just as much for it even without the stationary inside.
Have a great weekend and relax and enjoy yourself.
