Antique Wall-mounted Catholic shadowbox c.1877:
$56

You are looking at a really nice Catholic devotional shadowbox from the Episcopal Jubilee of 1877.The piece was made in 1877 as part of the celebration of Pius IX's Golden Jubilee.This has never been unsealed and is in pretty good shape. The sides of the shadow box are covered in ruched satin with silk flowers at the base.The label in the front at the bottom reads:"Thy Kingdom Come
100 Days Indulgence each time Pius IX 14 June 1877"After some research:"these shadow boxes were created in celebration of Pope Pius IX's 35 th year as pope in 1877 (His Golden Episcopal Jubilee).
...The shadow box depicts Jesus on the cross with different ornaments around the crucifix supposedly symbolic of various aspects of Jesus' mercy upon his resurrection. There are many symbols (considered sin and forgiveness symbols) on and around the cross, such as a chicken on a pedestal, a sword, a spear, skull and cross bones, hammer, whip, Jesus' burial shroud with dice a top, ladder, lantern, a pitcher, a cup and plate, and more. Around the crucifix is a satin lining, and t are leaves and flowers at the bottom. "The only damage to the piece is seen in the picture - there is a chip in the plaster frame on the upper right hand side.The rest of the frame is in surprisingly good shape - gilded silver with black shading.A really interesting piece you don't see too often!If you are in Chicago you can come pick it up or look at it, no problem.Feel free to ask questions!
