This vintage devotional scapular features a black and white printed image of Saint Michael the Archangel.
Although not printed or sewn anywhere on the piece, it is believed
that a scapular helps protect the soul of the wearer and it is
usually accompanied by the invocation:
Whosoever dies wearing this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire.
The picture has been protected by glass or plastic and is then framed with
brown felt and hand embroidered. The backing piece is reinforced
felt that has been hand sewn. Perhaps there is a devotional inside
- but we did not open the scapulars to determine this. The hanging
string is just that - cotton string or cord.
The brown pieces are approximately 1 inch long by 15/16 inch wide, but vary slightly as these all hand made.
