An antique silver Italian Ex voto Animal

These are antique silver religious offering from Naples known as an ex voto. They were bought by penitents (people petitioning god and saints) too aid with pregnancy, to cure all sorts of animal and human ailments. After the ailment abated or the desire was requested the silver object was donated to the church as a thanksgiving.

The ex voto is circa 1870. We also have other pieces of various shapes, which make a beautiful set. If you are interested in more than one please contact us for a price.

It is in overall great condition. Beautifully worked by artisans who once made a living purely from making these offerings for the church.

Each ex voto is priced individually.

Initially inspired by the interior at The Mint in Rye (our 15th century holiday let in Rye, East Sussex) and requests to purchase items by clients while staying, we decided to start sourcing and selling so people could do just that.

Based between London and East Sussex we have built up a network of specialist sources that we pull from to create the unique edit that is The Mint in Rye.  We offer a mix of vintage textiles, primitive furniture, curios, first edition books, vintage film posters and antique carved oak.  These are not chosen for their age, but very much for their aesthetic appeal.  The visual still remains true to The Mint interior style, but has broadened to include vintage elements that have the same unique view point.

To view the collection, please contact Barrie on +44 (0)7714 764708.  Dependant on the pieces you are interested in, they may be in East Sussex or in London.
