Guest Book
Mexico, 1850 to 1925 CE. This is a collection of many different .925 silver milagros, comprising small low-relief carved shapes of humans, animals, and buildings. You can enjoy discovering these small treasures! Milagros, also known as ex-voto, dijes, or promesas, are religious folk charms often used as votive offerings to pray for healing. They are usually attached to altars, shrines, or parts of churches -- for example, at San Miguel Mission in Santa Fe, they are nailed to the church bell. The gross weight of this collection is 2 oz. Size: all range around 1" (2.5 cm).

Condition: Patina/tarnish but artwork clear.

Provenance: Ex-Historia Antiques, James Caswell, Santa Monica, CA
