Antique French Religious Banner 1899
This is one of two identical antique French religious banners we have for
sale which are both in white linen and are decorated with gold paper letters and a starburst / divine light
surrounding a painted paper Sacred Heart. As they are quite delicate being linen,
we presume they would have hung in a church rather than be used outside
as processional banners. There are no missing letters or starburst / divine light motif but some have
come away a little from the linen - we have left them as we found them but they could
easily be carefully pasted back into place. The linen is in very good condition for its age with
no holes or tears, just a little faded now.
The Latin inscription surrounding the sacred heart reads :
Adveniat regnum tuum (Thy kingdom come)
With the date (also in gold paper) of 17 Juin (June) 1899.
Measures 195cm long x 57cm wide.
Delivery within mainland England and Wales £12 or can be collected from our shop.
