Description

This is a wrapped Wax Procession Plaque.

This object is In the Old World Tradition of Worship and is a plaque of wrapped and braided wax. These were carried during processions and accompanied by the singing of hymns.

It was a custom for children, in early European Christian times, to carry something to Church during various religious processions, which could be blessed at the Altar and then taken home as a gift to the family.

Since many bakeries also made Church candles and other wax items, a special wax ornament was fashioned by coiling a long wick through the wax and then winding it into a shape that fit comfortably into a child's hand.

These were decorated with different motifs of the Madonna, the Holy Child or other religious figures or church dressings. The pieces became so beautiful that they were treasured as symbols of a tradition which was passed on through the generations.

This piece depicts the flowers and baskets which would have been in the church and is handmade from a high percentage of beeswax,

It is hand-painted and gold leafing is used in the process. The intricacy of each little flower and the work involved in this craft is just amazing. Just beautiful and a real treasure of the skill of a craftsman in olden times.

It is in the original box.

(Make sure to ask the obvious!.... "Does it Work?"..!!!)... IT did not! ....(But I am pleased with the purchase overall, since~) I found a local horologists, who was able to get it up and running, smoothly!
(He also found to be missing a back piece, that was not mentioned either.... but he had a spare part as well, so happy endings here!~ and looks great on the night table by the bed!...
