A beautiful antique French religious medal dating to the 19th century. The pendant features a fine portrait of Saint Joseph and Jesus child. On the reverse it depicts "Our Lady of Divine Providence". 

"Devotion to Our Lady of Divine Providence originated in Italy, and spread to France and Spain. The devotion was brought to Puerto Rico in the early 1850s by the Servite Fathers. According to tradition, Philip Benizi (1233 – 1285) prayed to Mary for help in providing food for his friars, and subsequently found several baskets of provisions left at the door of the convent. Our Lady of Providence was declared the patroness of Puerto Rico by Pope Paul VI on November 19, 1969. Her feast day is celebrated in many immigrant Puerto Rican communities."

It comes with a brand new 925 sterling silver chain (16 or 18 inches, rolo or snake chain). 

Good antique condition with some normal signs of ages.
