Old Vintage Religious Our Lady of the Gate of Dawn Medal Aluminum Franciscan Mission Burlington Wi

Beautiful religious medal of Our Lady of the Gate of Dawn- this medal is made from aluminum and measures approximately 1 & 3/16ths inches tall with the bail. The medal says on the back Klasztor SW Franciszka Burlington Wi.

I believe this is a reference to the Franciscan Mission in Burlington.


  1. Medals are small, coinlike pieces of metal worn by many Catholics as a sign of faith. The most popular medals depict patron saints with whom the wearer feels an affinity. However, medals take a wide range of forms and functions. Medals may depict religious concepts as well as people.

  2. This is indeed beautiful. And look how detailed its design is. It is really great.
