ONE PIECE

***About our antique and vintage medals:***

These pieces have been culled from private collections and estates from all over the country, Canada and parts of Europe.

In the course of collecting for our own growing collection, we have acquired a mass cache of duplicates, which we offer here for sale.

Our descriptions are based on our own extensive knowledge of dating items, and while we are not extremely well-versed in religion, we do exhaustive internet research and consult various experts on the subject.

When offering more than one of a same design, there may be tiny, hardly noticeable variations due to the nature of the medals.

Aluminum is our favorite material, and pieces made of aluminum are often also the most detailed. They generally hold up very well. This metal has been used by artisans since the late 1800s, and although now thought of to be a cheap, disposable medium--back then it wasn't quite as plentiful or inexpensive.

We also offer a variety of new-old-stock vintage religious medals and crucifixes in our shop.

Thank you for reading!

Why does this old item look new?

Vintage (pre-2000) and antique (pre-1940) items will be stated in the title. Much of what we sell was found in old shops or foundries, almost always in multiples and usually discovered in the original packaging materials.

If an item is a new supply, it will be stated as such.

Old aluminum medallions? Not cheap and new?

Indeed! Due to the complexities of refining aluminum from ore, aluminum was considered more valuable than gold or silver through most of the 1800s. In the early 1900s the refinement was simplified, and aluminum became an inexpensive material. In the religious world, this meant that small devotionals were obtainable by anyone, even if they could not afford precious metals. Most of the aluminum pieces we offer for sale are extremely vintage, even antique. Some bear the original foundry markings, and most have come from Europe. Aluminum is lovely for its durability and ability to hold intricate detail. Being lightweight and shiny is not an indication of compromised quality, but rather an early alternative to heavier more costly metals.

DISCLAIMER: These items are NOT intended for use by children.

Intended solely for collecting and crafting, many of these vintage items have very small or potentially brittle parts, and were manufactured in an era before modern child safety laws existed. Please exercise common sense and caution, always supervise children and vulnerable adults with both small and breakable items.

Likewise, flammable items such as incense are not to be ingested and are to be used only as intended, under constant supervision.
