A bronze antique replica St. Christopher medal in the shape of a shamrock dangles from this artisan bookmark. Wonderful raised details both front and back are highlighted by the oxidation process. Gorgeous bronzite gemstones, antique replica bronze beads and a brown grosgrain ribbon complete the piece.
"St. Christopher Protect Us" is on the backside.
St. Christopher is known as the patron saint of travelers. He was one of the "Fourteen Holy Helpers" and was born with the name "Reprobus". The name Christopher means "Christ bearer" and was given to him by Jesus after carrying the Child Jesus across a river.
The medal is just under 1 inch.
These fine antique replicas are cast in solid bronze using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A.
