RELIGIOUS ANTIQUES & COLLECTIBLES : eBay Guides By Nicole La Bay


INTRODUCTION


Although there are breathtaking antique artifacts in every religion, what we mostly call "religious art" in antiques and collectibles today, is actually artifacts belonging to the Catholic liturgy, famous for its magnificence. 
 
From intricate embroideries to precious crucifixes, decorative holy water fonts to popular rosaries, religious Art is very much in demand today.

For several decades after WWII, churches and convents have poured their antique treasures on the market to raise funding for their institutions.

These prodigal days are over, as the same institutions now seem to be buying them back, possibly following a trend started by Benedict XVI, who contrary to Pope John XXIII's simple white robe, is now seen wearing more traditional vestments with intricate lace, etc.

This shift should ensure that the market of religious artifacts not only remains stable, but very likely increases for the next few years.

Since the spectrum of cult objects is nearly infinite! I will only review here, artifacts I have been collecting, trading or closely watching.


There are 2 parts to this guide:

1. ARTIFACTS

2. TEXTILES
