1960's John F Kennedy (JFK) & Pope John XXIII & Volto Santo Di Manoppello photo (known as the "Holy Face"
GOLD EDGE BAVARIA PLATE...9.5" dia
This is made by Marie Luise Seltmann Weiden East Bavaria
A beautifully decorated plate with pictures of Pope Pius XXIII, John Kennedy, and Volto Santo Di Manoppello. On the top of the plate, Pregate Per La Pace Nel Mondo...this means "Pray For World Peace" ...There is a wide heavy gold border
I'm somewhat baffled by this plate. 'Pregate per la Pace del Mondo' apparently means 'Pray for World Peace'. But who should you be praying to? The Pope, JFK or the image "Volto Santo Di Manoppello
I've done a little interweb checking and there are a few variations of this plate about, with the Pope and the Kennedys. But why? I can only guess that, for American Catholics (USA) in the 1960s, the Kennedys were second only to the Pope as heroes/role models
As God's representatives on Earth and so they deserved equal souvenir plate space...a Nice RARE collectible Plate...NO CHIPS...NO CRAZING...NO SCRATCHES
Pope John XXIII died in June 1963, so was this produced when they were all still alive? To further confuse things, although the words are in Italian, the plate was made in Bavaria.
