20.00

This unique vintage religious brooch was made in France circa 1938. It measures; 1.5" x 1.5" and is in excellent condition. An authentic and unusual piece to add to your vintage Catholic medals. Equally as nice used in jewelry assemblage! 

According to legend, in about 633, while Saint Omer was bishop of Thérouanne, an unmanned boat carrying a luminous statue of the Virgin Mary was sighted in the estuary at Boulogne. The statue was carried to the church and soon miracles were reported at the site. Between the 13th and 16th century the statue, known as Notre-Dame de la Mer ("Our Lady of the Sea") became a popular object of pilgrimage, bringing prosperity to the town.
