Vintage Italian Exvoto Composition – Framed Religious Artwork & Textile Flowers

Step into a world of timeless devotion with this exquisite antique Italian religious artwork. Dating back to the early 1900s, this framed exvoto composition is a testament to the craftsmanship of nuns from convents across Italy and other Catholic European countries. Each element of this piece tells a story of faith and reverence.

At the heart of the composition lies a large silver-plated copper exvoto adorned with three cherubs and four smaller angel heads. Golden letters spell out “AM” beneath a crown and a wreath of roses, while an oval exvoto features a relief of the Eucharistic chalice and crossed swords. Both exvotos rest upon a celestial blue fabric base, embellished with ribbons, fabric roses, and delicate paper stars and flowers. Intricate chromos depicting religious scenes, along with beadwork and metallic trimmings, add to the richness of this display.

The wooden frame, finished in light gold, provides a simple yet elegant border for the artwork. On the reverse side, a religious print depicting the Holy Family adds to the piece’s spiritual ambiance.

Dimensions: 15 3/8″ by 20 1/2″ (39 cm by 52 cm), thickness: 2″ (5.1 cm)

This religious composition with exvotos is in very good condition, with minor age spots on the background and slight discoloration on the ribbon. The frame is sturdy and free from any breaks or damage.
