This blue glass suncatcher is embossed with a Marian symbol of the Ave Maria, surrounded by the words Ad Jesum per Mariam (To Jesus through Mary). A small guide accompanies the item with the embossed image and a prayer by Saint Louis Marie de Montfort.
This suncatcher was custom made by Old Hancock Glassworks, in a historic Glassmaking region of southern New Hampshire, using centuries old techniques giving each piece an odd character not found in machine work. Each of these unique colonial artworks, about the size of the bottom of a bottle, is individually made and hand stamped.
Approximately 3 inch diameter. Colors slightly vary, as they are made from recycled glass.
Guaranteed not to fade in the sun.
Made exclusively for Saint Benedict Center.
Ordered 2 - 1 to keep and 1 to give away. Both are well made and such a beautiful blue. The recipient of the give away was delighted. Beautiful item - will look to order more.
The Ave Maria suncatcher is beautiful. The blue is perfect. Thank you very much for the wonderful item. I got one for my mom and am looking to get more! May God bless you always.
great gift ideas. Nice color. Good message.
Beautiful color, well-pressed, and weighty in the hand. I ordered 15 of them to give as Christmas gifts and they were well-received. I'd have ordered 20 but it seems I cleaned out the stock!
