Antique French Missels 4 Seasons Leather monogrammed
$190.00 incl. GST
This box contains 4 antique Leather French Missels – Prayer Books from 1888. Such a collection is called the seasons by the Roman parishioner as each Book is dedicated to one of the 4 seasons: Spring – Printemps, Summer – Eté, Automn – Automne and Winter – Hiver. Each book is made from dark Brown leather and each is monogrammed in Gold leaf with the initials E L or E E. The pages are Gold rimmed and the inside of each Missel is just gorgeous. Before going to print this set was seen and approved by Cardinal J Hipp in Paris as it says inside each Missel. Inside the box I found a hand written note in French which is dated 19 December 1943 and says that the box was a gift for a 1st Communion. All Missels are in fantastic condition and were loved and cared for. The box shows some age, inside the lid are the makers details E & A Lesort in Saint Germain – Paris. Size each Missel: w 7 x d 10.5 x h 3cm. The box size is 22 x 16.5 x h 3.5cm. Weight is 817 grms. What a terrific and special item for the collector! Postage from France included.
