A beautiful Italian antique religious medal depicting the beata vergine d'oropa. It depicts Madonna and child. The Sanctuary of Oropa (Italian: santuario di Oropa), is a group of Roman Catholic buildings and structures in the municipality of Biella, Italy. It is located at a height of 1,159 metres in a small valley of the Alpi Biellesi. According to legend, a black wooden statue of the Virgin Mary carved by Saint Luke was found in Jerusalem by Saint Eusebius of Vercelli, carried to Oropa in the 4th century AD. The statue of the black Madonna has always been venerated; several miracles and protections are attributed to the Virgin of Oropa.

On the reverse, it depicts two angels. There is the inscription: "Ricordo della Cresima 20 Maggio 1894" meaning "Souvenir of Confirmation, 20th May 1894".

This 19th century medal is made of sterling silver.

Good antique condition with some signs of ages.
