Pius XII gives the biscuit

Arising from comments in my post on Pope Paul VI, there was some discussion on Pius XII and a plate I have.  Here it is.


  1. Ok so mine has the identical center pic but the edge is latticed (?) - I'm struggling for the word and it's very poorly gilded. Looks like a 1950s housewife's ceramics project gone terrible wrong. Which is why I had to have it. Tacky religious "art" and the joy that it brings for a mere $3?

    Who wouldn't jump at that deal?!

    Will take a pic tonight.

  2. I suppose if you're a "blindfella" it doesn't really matter.

  3. Mine is here

  4. Yes, you win the kitch competition. Never seen one like that before.
