19th Century Indulgences Religious College | Dice and Skull
Regular priceSale price
Here we have a Victorian Catholic indulgences religious collage filling up the screen. We have an old crucifix with a skull and crossbones at the center...then we have the surroundings. We have a figure with dice replacing their head, a sword cutting through timber, a cup and saucer (drinks!), and a pole with a rooster on the top. Sins all around! An old religious print adorns the backdrop of the ornately framed shadowbox. Then we have the tag at the bottom reading the following:
Thy Kingdom Come 100 Days Indulgence Each Time (Pius IX., 14th June, 1877)
The antique religious iconography comes out of an old estate in northern Iowa, and right in the heart of the 19th century.
The framed religious shadowbox measures 18" tall, 14" wide, and about 3" deep. There's patina galore with this piece, although the piece is in really good shape for the age. Check out the reverse! There's some slight staining of the fabric surrounding the image. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO Boxes please). Free shipping on this amazing piece.
Sweet dreams. Say your prayers or skull and crossbones will come for you and your indulgences. So wicked.
