This vintage souvenir, a miniature cast metal replica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, is a detailed and beautiful little building, with rose windows, grand entrances, a tower, and a dome. The replica is marked with the shrine's name and Silberne Bush Metal. It appears to be a copper-washed metal but has a marvelous bronze patina with just hints of copper showing through. The bottom is covered by the original felt.

This small souvenir is in excellent condition.

The National Shrine was dedicated in 1959, but planning began much earlier, with the cornerstone finally laid in 1920. The Basilica is the largest Catholic church in North America. Architecturally, the Basilica is in Romanesque style "liberally interpreted"--basically a Romanesque exterior and Byzantine interior, with a design unlike any cathedral in the world.

Size: 4 1/2 inches long x 2 1/2 inches wide x 3 inches tall (11.4 x 6.3 x 7.6 cm)
