Newsnote: Vincentiana Purchase of the Week “Elaborate late 19th century Vincent holy card.”

The Vincentiana Collection at DePaul University’s Archives and Special Collections departments typically collects and adds several Vincent de Paul holy cards per week. This collecting has been going on for more than a decade, and there seems to be no end to the variety of these popular iconographic depictions of St. Vincent. This late 19th century example does not have a maker’s mark, but almost all of these cards were produced in Paris. The coloring, embossing, and other features suggest a late 19th century dating.
