Description

Brass Religious Icon. This small statue of a saint is 3/4 inch tall and fits in a small brass case. It is of a Catholic saint, likely St. Francis of Assisi, due to the figure's clothing, the oversize cross, and long rosary.

Many soldiers kept Bibles, prayer books, and religious icons as comforting items during the war.
