Obviously worn, otherwise remarkable interior condition, dark green velveteen with brass framed edges,Scripted IHS medallion,and clasp , and gold gilt edged pages. Perhaps this dear missal was carried in a pocket, the brass has beautiful patina as found,but I'm sure will polish if you prefer. As shown in photos, St. Guiseppe with child,makes me think this might be for a first Communion.Published in Milano, Italy. 2 1/2"x 4 1/2"
