This is a beautiful sterling silver Saint Christopher Holy Medal. This item was hand crafted in the late 1800s. It is a solid and sturdy piece with a beautiful patina. Saint Christopher is a highly venerated Saint amongst most denominations and across other faith traditions. His most famous legend tells that he carried a child, who was unknown to him, across a river before the child revealed himself as Christ. Therefore, he is the patron saint of travelers, and small images of him are often worn around the neck, on a bracelet, carried in a pocket, or placed in vehicles.
