Antique Pocket Shrine French Catholic Religious In Silvered Stone Depicting Our Blessed Mother The Virgin Mary

These are often referred to as soldier's shrines as they were frequently carried by catholic soldiers of the French army in the first and second world wars. I found these lovely icons at an antique fair not far from where I live and I had not seen them before and the dealer explained to me that they were also often carried by people so that they would have an image of The Virgin Mary with them wherever they went.

They are, of course, tiny. The largest is 6 centimetres, the second is 5.5 centimetres and the smallest is just 4.2 centimetres tall.
