Description

Antique Prayer Book Celluloid German 1902 from AllieEtCie

Wonderful antique, celluloid, German language, prayer book from 1902.

This antique prayer book has an ivory celluloid front and back cover. The front features a beautifully embossed rectangle with an oval cut out in the middle, bearing a gorgeous image of the Virgin Mother and the Christ Child. The back cover has the same, detailed rectangle, with the oval area in ivory celluloid with a design of lines that almost look like the rays of the sun. The book is held closed with an old brass latch. The 416 pages are edged in a lovely, worn, gold, gilt.

The inside cover of the book has beautiful, small blue flowers, (photos available upon request). The text of the book is all in German, however, there is a date of 1902 on two different pages of the book.

Measurements: Approximately 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" x 1" ~ Please note, this is a small, palm size book.

Condition: Old and tattered. The last few pages, while still attached, have come away from the main body of the book, (pic #4), and have been taped in place. Pages 399-402 are missing. This antique prayer book is 114 years old, and it shows its age.

Regardless of this amazing prayer book's age and condition, (or perhaps because of it), there is so much beauty here. It was most likely given, and received, with a full heart, and cherished for many years. I believe that this wonderful, book of prayers, will still touch the heart.
