St. Anthony Pendant

Touchstone Pottery
  • Patron of lost objects, things that are hoped for, and the poor
  • Saint Anthony left his wealthy family in Portugal to become a poor Franciscan priest. He shipwrecked on his way to evangelize and joined other brothers living in a cave in San Paolo near a monastery. There, he became a legendary speaker, attracting crowds wherever he went. Legend says that even fish would gather to hear him speak. St. Anthony is one of the most beloved of all saints.

For centuries, we have called upon our patron saints knowing that they will be our advocates and provide us strength. The exemplary lives of the saints serve as examples to us. Having a special saint to call on for each of our needs gives us hope, encouragement, and protection. Our handmade porcelain portraits help to keep your patron saint close to you.

Illustrated by South Carolina artist Monica Wyrick.

Each piece is composed of fine grained, translucent porcelain clay. The intricate designs consist of slip glazes fired into the porcelain, then each piece is finished to a satin touch and is approximately 1 3/8 by 7/8 inch. Each oval pendant has a 32-inch black rayon cord and is individually packaged in a velvet-like box with a card describing the symbolism of the design.
