  • An antique silver Italian Ex voto

    These are antique silver religious offering from Naples known as an ex voto. They were bought by penitents (people petitioning god and saints) too aid with pregnancy and to cure all sorts of ailments. After the ailment abated or the desire was requested the silver object was donated to the church as a thanksgiving.

    The ex voto is circa 1870. We also have other pieces of various shapes, which make a beautiful set. If you are interested in more than one please contact us for a price.

    It is in overall great condition. Beautifully worked by artisans who once made a living purely from making these offerings for the church.

    This is for one Ex Voto.
