Needless to say, as we comb through the many Catholic estates we visit, we come across lots of "odds and ends" which are clearly sacramental in nature. They do tend to pile up after a while, and we enjoy putting together large lots of these items for auction. We have also come across some delightfully unusual items. After doing this for a number of years, there are still surprises!
A Noma plastic light up altar
Plastic fan with Saints
Napkin holder and shakers
1940s Reticulated Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe that changes to a view of a Traditional Altar with Tilma
This was a home made rosary devotion from the estate of a machinist. It lit up. c 1940s
A three-dimensional shrine. The background was deep clear blue, and there are little flowers at Mary's feet.
This is part of a longer piece that represented Monks as the 7 Deadly sins. A customer told me it was a pipe rack. Unfortunately, it was cracked and fell apart.
Victorian reliquary display
Puzzling here is the giant plastic pocket watch with image of Mary and Child along with St. Francis is a peculiar tree stump.
Some early plastic devotionals which are very pretty.
Pope John XXIII key holder
A magnificent profile of Jesus
An old beveled edge mirror with the Holy Family.
This is one of our all time favorites - a little plastic "television" featuring images of the mysteries of the rosary. When you flip it, you see the text describing the mystery.
