Size Chart

Beautifully rendered Christian Medal made for St Anthony Orphanage in Rome, Italy. It is a Memorial medal commemorating the 700th Anniversary of St Anthony's death.

On one side St Anthony holds Baby Jesus which has his arms affectionately around the Saint's face. The center figures are flanked by praying children. It is a very lovely scene. Surrounding the scene along the rim it reads "Orfanotrofio Antoniano, Circovallazione Appia 66 Roma".

The reverse side features the body of St Anthony resting on a stone bed, his head raised by angels, his face illuminated by Holy Light from a cloud, his hands crossed, clasping the Holy Cross. Another monk kneels in prayer at his side. It is very moving and inspiring. Along the edge it reads: "Orfanotrophi Antoniani, Video Dominum Mevm" and "VII A. S. Antonii Pat. Obitu Centenario, A Can. A. M. di Francia Conditi"

Measurements are approximately 1 5/8" tall including the top portion by almost 1 1/2" in diameter. Condition is superb, every detail is present. Silver plating has a lovely patina that enhances the fine features.

St Anthony of Padua died in 1231 dating this medal to 1931.

We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
