Our Lady of the Rosary Statuette Pendant
Small statuette pendant of Our Lady of the Rosary, formerly called Our Lady of Victory. Very nice detail front and back, suitable for attaching to a chaplet or rosary, or for wearing as a pendant.
Our Lady of the Rosary (also known as Our Lady of the Holy Rosary) is a name of the Blessed Virgin Mary. On October 7, the Catholic Church celebrates the yearly feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
Known for several centuries as “Our Lady of Victory,” the feast day takes place in honor of a 16th century naval victory which secured Europe against Turkish invasion. Pope St Pius V attributed the victory to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who was invoked on the day of the battle through a campaign to pray the Rosary throughout Europe.
Made in Italy from nickle & lead free pewter, the statuette is approx 4cm tall including the top loop.
Comes with a silver steel split ring through the loop on top so it is ready to use.
