Please take a look....I have listed other great religious items.

Up for sale is a vintage standard of the Legion of Mary ( circa 1940 ) made of hard metal and marble. It measures from the stand to the top 13 1/4 inches high. It is in very good condition.

The square marble stand is in good condition with no chips.

The vexillum legionis ( The standard of the legion of Mary ) is an adaptation of the standard of the roman legion. The eagle which surmounted the standard is replaced by the dove. The emblem of the Holy spirit. Beneath the dove a cross-bar bears the inscription '' Legio Mariae'' ( Legion of Mary). Intermediate between bar and staff ( and joined to the former by a rose and lilly) is an oval frame bearing a representation of the Immaculate Conception ( the miraculous medal ).

The staff is set in a globe which, for use on a table, stands on a square base. The whole design conveys the idea that the world is to be conquered by the holy spirit acting through Mary and her children.

It is a very nice vintage piece to have in any collection.
